Alberta, Canada

I have always had a passion for aviation. As soon as possible, I obtained both my glider pilot’s license and private pilot’s license, and continued on to becom a gliding instructor. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta, and a Masters degree in Sustainable Energy Engineering from the Technical University of Delft. During high school and university, I spent several years in the surveying industry based in northern Alberta. With the advances in unmanned systems I have become involved in the industry, combining many aspects of my background to create a company, Elevated Robotic Services (ERS). ERS uses drones from mapping, surveying and inspections.
