    I started out my aviation life as a sophomore in high school. Mundelein High School in Mundelein, Illinois had a nationally recognized aviation program that allowed the kids to build several homebuilt aircraft. I also got my private pilot’s license before graduating high school.

    During the summer after graduation I got my first job in aviation as a fueler for a flying club in Waukegan called the Stick and Rudder Club. I also helped do some maintenance stuff like rebuild wheels and tires. After high school I went to Lewis University for my A&P during which time I worked for JF Aviation at the Joliet airport.

    After 2 years at Lewis I left for Arizona to get my bachelor's degree from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott. I also got a job in the aircraft maintenance department at ERAU working on the flight school aircraft. After graduation from ERAU I went to work for Wisconsin Aviation in Madison, Wisconsin. After working for less than a year I got a chance to work for Atlantic Coast Airlines at ORD.

    I decided to move back to Arizona to work with a friend as an insurance consultant. We travelled all over the country observing engine teardowns, writing reports and doing some expert testimony. During this time, I got married, had my first son and bought my first house. This consulting work eventually dried up and we moved back to the Chicago suburbs. I found a job at SkyWest Airlines at ORD.

    I worked for SkyWest for 8 years. While at SkyWest I worked as a line mechanic, a line lead mechanic and a hangar supervisor. I had another son in 2007 and my third boy in 2013. I started at Southwest in April 2015.

     

    As Vice President of AMFA local 4 for the last two years I have tried to improve communications with the members by starting the Local 4 Facebook page. This page has grown to become the most active way for members to communicate on the internet today. While serving as VP I also organized, along with the picketing committee, the most successful picketing event to date. We had over 100 mechanics and several flight attendants and pilots attend our event.

    By running for this position, I’m hoping to get some new people involved with AMFA and to help spur involvement with mechanics who haven’t been with Southwest for very long.
