Fight to Fly. Fly to Live. Live to Inspire.
Though my professional passion has changed to being a Special Education teacher, I am still very much involved in the aviation community, specifically through photography and,now, videography.
I'm still kind of shocked to find that my camera has gotten me into more cockpits than my pilot certificate! Howeve, I don't care what gets me there, I just enjoy being around the amazing individuals that care for and operate these amazing machines.
And that is where you come in. Being a new teacher, fresh out of college and trying to deal with the current economy, I am not in a position (yet) to fully fund my projects on my own. I have many projects in the works for the 2013 airshow season and want to share stories from all aspects of aviation from multiple facets, including warbirds, military, commercial, general aviation, and flight training. I want to include the entire community, from pilots to the person who sweeps the shop floor every night.
A fascination in aviation is something that truly brings people together. As a thirteen year-old student pilot I was able to make friends with and hold conversations with fellow student pilots as well as military veterans from WWII and beyond as well as 747 captains.
Aviation is also something that inspires all of us. It is my desire to acquire the tools necessary to bring these stories and inspirations to viewers around the globe with the best possible quality available.
Again, this is where your support helps turn this from a dream into reality. Wether it is financial or through words of encouragement, every little bit helps.
