More About Me

I’m an airline travel geek who left the airlines in June 2011 after 16.5 years in the industry.  I’ve worked for Delta, ATA and Continental Airlines.  To top it off, I also hold a Masters degree in Aeronautical Sciences from “Harvard of the Skies,” Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.  Today, I’m a nomad living with friends as they’ll have me while providing travel tips to you.

I still remembers my first airplane flight in the summer of 1974 as if it were yesterday. It was on a Cessna SkyMaster from the Tinson Pen Aerodrome in Kingston, Jamaica, to Boscobel, Jamaica, lasting a little under two hours.  I was elated as my dream to fly on an airplane had finally come true!

My first commercial airplane flight was during the summer of 1980 on BWIA (now Caribbean Airlines), from Kingston, Jamaica (KIN), to Fort-de-France, Martinique (FDF).  I spent 17 days there as a French Exchange student.  On my way back, I stopped in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti (PAP), for two days.  The flight bug had bit me, there’s no turning back now.

In June 2011, I left my corporate job due to a merger. Today, I fly as often as I can, sometimes just for the sake of being in the air and around an airport or an airplane.  My itineraries take me all over the globe usually for short trips.

This year (2013), I’ve been to Panama City, Panama; Berlin, Germany; Oslo, Norway; Santiago, Chile and Bali, Indonesia to mention a few places.  I don’t really have a home; I just stay with my friends around the world.  Who knows where I’ll go next?
