I’ve been in flight simulation since the late 1980’s. I earned my private pilot single engine (PSEL) license in 1992 at 19 years of age. Earned my instrument rating and went through commercial pilot training in 2001 at WestWind School of Aeronautics in Phoenix, AZ (KDVT). I live in Portland, Oregon (U.S.A.) in the Pacific Northwest. I work in science research to pay the bills. I’ve been married for over 15 years and have a 6-year-old daughter.
