Thanks to my brother, I learned to fly on a Minimax 700 two channel sailplane using a high start and eventually graduated to an electric powered Great Planes Spectra.  The bug bit hard and the hook went deep.   From there it was a GP PT-40 and then onto my second powered airplane, the venerable Sig 4 Star 40.  Years pass and the planes come and go.  I currently fly glow, gas, and electric  and really enjoy scratch building from plans.   I joined PBRCA in 2016 and it's been a blast ever since.

Born in Jamaica, I’ve been in and out of the hobby over the past 55 years.  Started with control line planes at 12, and over the years built and flew R/C planes in New York, and R/C planes and helicopters in Atlanta with the Georgia Model Aviators.  Took a break from 2010 until my retirement in 2020.  Since July 2020, I’ve been trying to make up for lost time and recently got into EDF jets.  Like to have something on the bench, either building or rebuilding.  Joined PBRCA in 2014 when we moved to Florida and became active in the club in 2021.

Director at Large

From control line as a kid, to r/c flight for the last 45 years, flying has been a big part of my life. And during that time I’ve enjoyed serving on the boards of five r/c clubs. I’m also proud to be one of the original PBRCA members, and can usually be found flying both fixed wing and helis every Monday through Friday.
