I am passionate about problem solving and aviation. I have spent the past 12 years studying, building, programming, and flying anything with wings/rotors. My current role at Rogue Squadron has enabled me to do what I love and lead a team of the most talented software/hardware/cyber engineers in the DOD.
A life goal of mine, has always been, to build and fly my own aircraft. Depending on the day, I usually see myself building the Kitfox S7 Supersport. Canards (like the Velocity) have been a passion of mine since I was building balsa wood aircraft as a kid, but the bush plane community has really sold me on bringing back the "adventure" of aviation.
Veteran-owned small business with over 12 years of Department of Defense (DoD) and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) experience. I provide unique subject matter expertise to assist government and commercial entities in projects concerning UAS technologies and operations.
Random projects I've built over the years.
Rogue Squadron is a rapid prototyping group and red team situated with the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU). It has three focus areas: (1) equipping friendly forces with autonomous systems (2) developing technology to defeat adversary UAS and (3) red teaming government entities and commercial vendors, to ensure we have the best possible capabilities to defeat UAS threats.
