Personal background:

I grew up in Taxachusetts/Cow Hampshire and spent my summers at my dad’s bicycle frame shop building airplanes, driving/breaking/fixing RC cars, and removing skin from my appendages by falling off of skateboards. I raced 1/24 scale slot cars with my dad at a local track and developed a bit of a competitive mindset doing that. Growing up and through high school I worked on my old Jeep, computers, and hung out with friends near the NH/MA border. In the fall of 2006 I entered Worcester Polytechnic Institute and got my degree in the fall of 2010 in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Mechanical Design. During that time I was able to work on many exciting academic projects including the Formula SAE racecar. Since graduating, I have worked at a small company in southern NH who makes products for the laser industry.

RC background:

I started flying RC when I was about 12 years old in the good old glow-powered 72 mhz days. I enjoyed learning to fly for a summer, and then flying the old airplanes my dad had kept since the 70’s. After that time I worked into 3D and IMAC mostly, with planes ranging from 40 sized profiles to 80cc gas planes to 150cc IMAC aircraft. Over the course of about 6 years I worked through the IMAC classes and started flying Unlimited in 2009. In 2010 with more free time and money available I started to fly a bit more and take on some sponsorships and really embrace all that the hobby has to offer. Since then I have been able to really take advantage of what the hobby has to offer and have been fortunate enough to work with the best companies in the business
