About Me

M.S. Aviation Safety, Central Missouri State University

B.S. Aviation Business Administration, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

B.S. Management of Technical Operations, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

I was born and raised in NJ and started flying when I was in high school. I graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a BS in Aviation Business Administration and BS in Management of Technical Operations, then continued my education at Central Missouri State University and graduated with a MS in Aviation Safety.

After working as a flight instructor / commercial pilot for 3 years, I began a career in Airport Management / Airport Operations with the City of Phoenix Aviation Department. I spent 2 years as an Airport Management Intern and 2 years as an Airfield Operations Assistant before accepting a job as Airport Operations Manager at Amarillo International Airport. After two and a half years, I decided to go back to a large hub airport, and worked as an Assistant Aviation Operations Manager at Denver International Airport for a year before moved to Cleveland. Currently I supervise airport operations at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
