My dad and I started flying R/C together when I was 6 years old. At 7 years old, I told my parents that I wanted to fly competition R/C and my dad supported me as a coach, mentor and caller as we started competing in IMAC aerobatic contests. I qualified for my first Tucson Aerobatic Shootout at age 10 in the Sportsman class but I really found I could express my love for flying through creativeness of freestyle competitions. I have won numerous regional IMAC freestyles (14 total) as well as getting 3rd place at the 2012 Tucson Shootout Freestyle competition and 3rd place at the 2014 XFC Freestyle competition. Currently, I compete in the Unlimited IMAC class in the Southwest region in both precision and freestyle but also competed in the 2013, 2014 and 2015 XFC freestyle championships; competing in both airplanes and helicopters in 2015. But competition is not the only thing in my life, I have also flown many non-competition venues such as the Joe Nall Fly-in, AMA Expo Convention, Arizona Electric Festival, Arizona EF EXPO indoor fly-in and competition and local freestyle flying demonstrations as well as design and build my own foamies. Flying has been a great experience for me over all these years being able to spend time with my dad and learn about the technology but also from meeting all the great people in this hobby.
