What is your occupation? Clinical Applications Specialist

What made you want to become a balloon pilot? Having started crewing for balloons when I was 13, I was always interested in taking it that next step and learning to fly myself. I got that bug even more after I got my first flight in a balloon.

What has been your best flying experience to date? Flying in Methven with the snow caped mountains as a backdrop and getting to see that stunning landscape that is around. Also flying locally, every flight is different and the scenery is always changing as well.

If you could fly anywhere in the world, where would it be?I would love to fly in France, the birthplace of modern ballooning. Or fly across the Swiss Alps.

What is your ultimate goal in ballooning? To have fun and keep sharing that fun with others.

What is the coolest thing about your balloon? It's a lightweight sport balloon perfectly suited to travel, all packed up it will fit in the back of my car.
