He went on to begin his professional flying career at the age of 18 flight instructing, towing gliders, and crop dusting on weekends and summers while attending New Mexico Military Institute. Following graduation there he continued his professional career as a corporate pilot before joining a major US airline in 1988, where he now flies as a Boeing 777 Captain. Additionally, he is the Chairman of the Air Line Pilots Association Aeromedical Committee at his airline, and concurrently is a Partner in the prestigious aviation consulting firm, AeroConsulting Experts of Los Angeles. Additionally he has completed coursework at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and the University of Southern California. He has won national awards and recognition for his work in aviation safety as well as for mentoring young aviators.
