I just turned 40 last February. Born in SF makes me a Niner and Giant fan but I’ll root for Golden State BBall when they’re competitive. My big sister used to use the “airplane into the hanger” method to feed me way back in the early 80’s and I remember a guy who wanted to date my Mom took us up at Riverside airport when I was a youngan’. I suppose these and several other experiences including viewing the Thunderbirds from my best friends roof in Moval, are what shaped my interest in aviation. But is it a passion? Hmmm. i think a bigger passion of mine is helping people. So if I could find where these 2 facets of my life meet and have a career there, I would be a happy camper.
