Overview

25+ years operating and maintaining unmanned systems. I entered the world of Navy unmanned systems in 1987...back when it wasn't cool to do so. I started out working with the BQM-74C target drone followed by the QST-33 and QST-35 unmanned powered surface targets. I transitioned to flying UAV's and after getting out the Navy I continued flying UAV's to include the Hermes 450, Aerostar, Mini Falcon II, Skylark and Sentry HP.

Specialties: UAS operations, technical writing, training & curriculum development, project management.
