Most of my personal time is spent with my wife and two middle school-age kids. Soccer, horse-back riding, bike riding, and playing with our dog Chaplin are some of our favorite family activities. I enjoy running and cross-training. I completed the Marine Corp Marathon in 2013! Mountain biking at Harris Lake is a thrill for me too. I am a Certified Flight Instructor and have Commercial, Multi-Engine, and Instrument-pilot certifications. Some of my best childhood memories involve going flying with my dad. Even though I don't use these licenses in my career, my love for aviation runs deep.
