I am the founder of ConnexiCore™, one of the top drone service providers in the United States.
By leveraging my 35-year background in sales, marketing, and leadership with specialties in software, telecommunications, aviation, and emerging technologies, I was able to grow ConnexiCore significantly. This led to an acquisition in 2021 by Volatus Aerospace. I remain as CEO of ConnexiCore, collaborating with an outstanding group of industry professionals at Volatus to create the premier unmanned services company in North America.
I have served on multiple industry boards and associations. As a founding member and Co-Chair of the CompTIA Drone Advisory Council, I was a contributing author of the 2017 “Drone Standards and Best Practices” guide. As a member of the PA Drone Association Advisory Council, I was invited in 2019 to testify to Pennsylvania state legislators to advocate for UAS adoption to drive additional economic development opportunities.
As a UAS industry thought leader, I’m highly focused on advocating for aerial drone data acquisition, geospatial analytics, and artificial intelligence, and I am an FAA-certified Part 107 remote pilot. I speak at national conferences, write for drone industry blogs, and host one of the top 10 drone podcasts in the country, “Drone Insights and Technology”.
I am a United States Navy veteran trained in avionics engineering and was part of a strike group deployed on the USS Kitty Hawk Aircraft Carrier. I am deeply committed to supporting veterans and creating opportunities for them in the drone industry.
I am an active member of the following associations:
