As with most enthusiasts, I started flying at an early age and dedicated my life's ambition to the fascinating field of aviation. I started out civilian flying in the early 1970's while in undergraduate school at Villanova University. After graduation, I was commissioned as an Ensign in the U.S. Navy and began a 13 year active duty flying career as a Naval Flight Officer and Pilot. In 1987 I resigned my active duty commission and entered my second career as a pilot for American Airlines . After enjoying 31 years flying all over the world, I reached mandatory retirement age and reluctantly left the industry.

I am now serving as Chief Pilot at Shannon School of Aeronautics and JLS Aviation where I can now share the joy and satisfaction of flying to all of those who want to start a career, personal flying, or just experience the wonderment of what the Wright Brothers began.
