I grew up on a private airstrip surrounded by aviation-minded family and friends. This led me to a desire for a career that involved aviation in some form. Through my teen years, I was drawn like a magnet to computer technology. After founding Gazing Skyward TV to share my love of aviation history with others, I realized how passionate I was about making computer technology work for the betterment of the aviation community, specifically in the area of digital media.
