Significant experience as aviation leader and strategic thinker for nearly 40 years. Over 12 years managing within the FAA as the Rotorcraft Directorate Manager, assistant Engine & Propellor Directorate manager, and co-chairing several committees to bridge regulatory and industry needs.  As a Flight Analyst DER (Chart G), I am able to support all aircraft/rotorcraft approvals.  Strong technical, regulatory, and leadership background has also make me a great resource as an expert witness, trainer, public speaker, and executive coach.  Currently working with several ODAs and OEMs.  Previously worked with Bell Helicopter, Aerosafe Risk Management, and US Army.
