What is your occupation? Balloon Pilot

What made you want to become a balloon pilot? Ever since I saw my first balloon flying over our house in Hamilton when I was 6 years old.

What has been your best flying experience to date? Completing my Flying High for Kids Project. I drove a truck through 87 countries, taking my balloon with me, flying it from many schools, encouraging kids to follow their dreams.

If you could fly anywhere in the world, where would it be? I would like to fly over both north and south poles.

What is your ultimate goal in ballooning? To fly in every country in the world.

What is the coolest thing about your balloon? It is the most travelled balloon in the world, having flown in 87 countries.
