I co-founded MRO Insider in 2016, along with my wife, Lindsay. MRO Insider is a web-based platform and mobile app to connect business aircraft operators with service providers when they need maintenance or support away from home. We have over 400 provider locations listed in 25 countries.

This is my favorite post to date, which happens to be an article I published. I enjoyed writing it due to the passion involved but was overwhelmed by private messages and face-to-face chats with folks in the industry who are recently sober or who would like to get sober. It resonated with the “I am not alone” crowd.

I think many of my followers thought it was a cool accomplishment to have our company story published in Flying Magazine, vs the smaller publications in business aviation..
