He studied in Australia and joined the Canberra Gliding Club in 1983, becoming an instructor in 1986. He then moved to England where he instructed at Lasham Gliding Club. Returning to Canada, he took a 16 year break while his children were young and then joined SOSA where he enjoys instructing and flying cross-country. In 2018 he won the club class at the Canadian nationals and then flew in the PanAmerican Gliding championships in 2019. Sharing solar powered flight is a passion.
