A good part of my life has been dedicated to writing software in the LAMP environment. I’m frequently seen at airshows and enjoy flying. These days I’m happy playing soldier on the weekends and aviation blogger/software engineer during the week.


Reservists are also known as weekend warriors. Taking time away from family once a month we train 20 days a year. I’m a driver but currently in an admin position managing soldiers in my platoon.


It’s getting harder to keep current but flying has always been a big part of my life. There’s nothing like going on holiday and getting to fly yourself.
