I learned to fly in England sixteen years ago and received my pilot's license before I'd taken my first driving lesson. Following a passion and enchantment with all things aviation I'm now a flight instructor and enjoy sharing the excitement of flying with others.

I have experience flying over 45 different airplane types and hold the following F.A.A. licenses: Flight Instructor (Airplane Single Engine; Instrument Airplane); Advanced Ground Instructor; Commercial Pilot (Instrument Airplane: Single and Multi Engine Land, Single Engine Sea)

When I'm not in the air I work at an exciting technology startup, following roles in corporate strategy and engineering consulting. I enjoy running, road biking, and am a volunteer search and rescue pilot with the Civil Air Patrol.

Marco is amazing! We gave my son a flying lesson with Marco for his 14th birthday--when our son landed, he told us it was the best experience of his life. Marco not only took our son and two friends on a breathtaking tour of the Bay Area, but he patiently taught the boys a lot about aeronautics. My son enjoyed his time with Marco so much that he is now taking flying lessons with him. I am a huge fan of Pardic Air!
