My focus on great communications — clear content, professional quality video, and graphic design, in training and consulting."

I got excited about drones about 2015. Purchasing one video drone, then another one, then a couple of sport flyers. My LikeTech YouTube channel has an insane number of views on the drone videos I've created.

I happened upon a couple of guys at a local park flying FPV drones they had built themselves. Racing fast around a course. Resistance was futile! I had to do this. Working hard to learn all I could. Books. YouTube. Forums, Local RC clubs. After I wasted a lot of money on the wrong parts, and broke so many of them too, I became a skilled drone builder and YouTube drone authority. Now I own so many drones, and can’t wait to build the next one!

Today I am flying as a commercial drone pilot and a recreational drone enthusiast: On August 30th. 2016 I received my certification as a UAS Part 107 pilot from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), with a high score. This is remarkable only because the FAA only began certifying Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) aircraft less than 24 hours earlier! So I guess I am one of the very first legal drone pilots under Part 107 in the world.

I’m a Technologist at heart: I even use to own an Apple Computer Macintosh concept store for 13 years. Now I'm website developer. I create advanced websites that feature professional video and audio experiences, with connected YouTube channels, Facebook, and other social media stuff. Years of doing this really helped me make these online courses for you.

About 30 years ago I was into RC air planes, cars, and boats, until my first daughter was born. You can guess the rest of that story. Yeah, I’m an empty nester! It’s like I came back full circle to RC drones.

I hope you'll join me.
