New Media Resume
My background in motorsports, construction products, television production, software, and human services has given me a varied and dynamic range of capabilities that no paper resume can define. There were many years where I presented sales seminars and hosted booths at more than a dozen trade shows each year for my own ventures, as well as acted as sales consultant and spokesman for various types of companies throughout the country.

Also, but most importantly- I have become very close to the people on the cutting edge of aviation new media projects and either co-hosted, interviewed with, contributed to, played mandolin with, played guitar huddling around 50 people in the rain with, or given rides on golf carts to the following dear friends and colleagues, in no particular order:
From: Uncontrolled Airspace, The Aviation Podcast: Jack Hodgson, Dave Higdon, and Jeb 'Boom Boom' Burnside
From: Other Peoples Airplanes: David Allen
From: A Pilot's Story: Will 'Locksmith' Hawkins and the love of his life, the famous Kat
From: Stuck Mike Pod Cast: Carl Valeri and the gang
From: Airspeed- Stephen Force who on weekdays is Steve Tupper, mild mannered legal eagle for a small metropolitan law firm... who fights for aviation rights, peace, justice, and The American Way!
