I am a calm, insightful and practical leader. My inclusive approach to people leadership stems from an enduring motivation to support balanced and sustainable business operations for pilots, the broader aviation community and its customers. An accomplished aircraft Captain with a variety of aviation industry experience, I commenced my career as flight instructor to the next generation of aviation professionals, and have been fortunate to develop my aviation skills through Coastwatch Aviation, operational management. For the last 18 years my focus has been flying international and domestic routes with major Australian and Japanese airlines.
Living in Korea and Japan has enhanced my understanding of the cultural complexities and rewards of collaboration in the Asia-Pacific region.
My commitment to pursuing high quality crew and team management has never been stronger or more important. I thrive on the daily challenges of operating in a dynamic environment and solving the complex problems this can present to crew. Seeing accomplishment through learning is immensely satisfying and drives me to motivate others to be their best.
