Flight Operations Specialist
How long have you been flying?
Where do you live?
I technically have an Oregon address. However, my wife and I became FULL-TIME Rv’ers when I took this job. We now follow the airplanes around and stay in the RV.
Where is your favorite place that you have traveled to for work?
I really enjoyed being in “Big Sky” Montana.
What is the coolest airport that you have landed at for work?
KIAG – Niagara Falls. What an awesome approach in!!
What about Sol made you decide to work here?
Peter. He just has a different approach to life and business than most people. He is genuine.
What makes Sol a special place to work?
The owner really. We can list all the good things about Sol, but the fact of the matter is an organization’s qualities are created at the top. Peter is an owner who goes above and beyond to make this a great company.
Which of our company’s core values (Safety, Hard Work, Integrity, The Little Things Matter) resonates the most with you?
For me it is Integrity. I come from a law enforcement background with a department that prided itself on our integrity. In the survey world, having integrity translates to earning the trust and respect of our clients.
Where would it be and why if you could live anywhere in the world?
I grew up in California, but I am a major history buff. I enjoy U.S. History. For that reason, I have always been drawn to the east coast. I feel like the history is richer on the east coast.
Do you know any other language apart from English?
I grew up speaking a lot of Spanish. However, I haven’t been around it much since I was about 15. I still understand many conversations but have trouble speaking back.
What is your favorite season and why?
I love Fall. It is still warm enough to do outdoor activities, but cool enough to enjoy.
