Brought up in the vibrant city of Hong Kong by tech savvy parents, the love for technology was planted into me at a very young age. As a teenager I was particularly drawn towards media design and audio/visual production - basically merging tech with artsy-fartsy-music stuff. But as an Information Management & Technology major at Syracuse University, I've been able to branch out into more technical fields in programming, project management, business analytics, network and security management, as well as systems and database administration.
While technology has and will always remain a passion of mine, flying is ultimately my first love. Spending my university semester breaks in Toronto, where I have family, opened up the opportunity for me to take up flying lessons. After gaining my Private Pilot's License, I came to the UK to complete the rest of my commercial qualifications. The dream was to kickstart my career back in Hong Kong, but as things would work out I got my start in commercial aviation with Flybe in 2018 based up in Glasgow. I've since moved on to British Airways where I'm currently a First Officer flying the Airbus A320 out of London-Gatwick.
When I'm not flying planes or nerding out over tech, you'd likely find me jamming on the drums and guitar - I like to think I have a wide ranging taste in music, even though I never quite outgrew my pop-punk phase. Not that I'm particularly good at it, but I do like to cook quite a bit. Being a guy naturally makes me a huge sports geek - I'm a Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins fan... yes, I'm well aware I essentially root for America's most hated teams. I also follow the Formula One calendar rather religiously. The constant commuting into Southampton flying overhead St. Mary's Stadium on a near daily basis when I was at Flybe has turned me into a Saints supporter. Most importantly being a Syracuse alumn naturally means I bleed Orange... LETS GO CUSE!!!
