“My interest in UAS began in 2006 in the Masai Mara, Kenya where I met Gary. I have always loved computers, maps, aerial photos and any kind of flying thing so the UAS addiction quickly took hold. Since then my interest in these technologies has grown from just an interest to building and flying small UAS as well as getting involved with sUAS News.”
