Throughout my career, I have actively contributed to the UAS industry by serving on industry boards and associations. As a founding member and Co-Chair of the CompTIA Drone Advisory Council, I played a significant role in the development of the renowned “Drone Standards and Best Practices” guide. Testifying before Pennsylvania state legislators as a member of the PA Drone Association Advisory Council, I advocated for UAS adoption to drive economic development.
As a thought leader in the UAS industry, I am deeply committed to promoting aerial drone data acquisition, geospatial analytics, and artificial intelligence. Holding an FAA-certified Part 107 remote pilot certification, I prioritize safety and professionalism. I am a sought-after speaker at national conferences, contribute to influential drone industry blogs, and host the highly regarded “Drone Insights and Technology” podcast.
My journey began as a United States Navy Airman trained in avionics engineering, serving on the USS Kitty Hawk Aircraft Carrier. Guided by a profound commitment to supporting veterans and creating opportunities for them in the drone industry, I strive to make a meaningful impact on their lives.
With an unwavering focus on thought leadership, innovation, and industry collaboration, I am actively contributing to the future of the UAS industry. Leading ConnexiCore and working with exceptional professionals at Volatus is a tremendous honor as we push the boundaries of unmanned services and drive unprecedented advancements in this disruptive technology field.
