I am honored to serve as your president for 2020.  I love flying to backcountry airstrips with my wife, Kolette, and our dog, Dork, in our Skylane RG.  I started flying in 1979 while I was a junior in high school.  I soloed just before my 17th birthday and earned my private Pilot License shortly thereafter.  During the summers while attending college, I earned my Instrument, Commercial, CFI and CFI-A ratings and taught some flying.

I came to Everett, WA in 1986 to work at Fluke Manufacturing as an Electrical Engineer.  I joined Microsoft in 1994 and worked there until I retired at the end of 2016.

While at Microsoft I earned my single engine seaplane rating, and shortly after retiring from Microsoft in March 2017 I earned my Multi-Engine rating.  Since retiring from Microsoft, I have been flying more and doing a little flight instructing.
