US Army Air Corps

Very much enjoy getting to discover and research these moments in history. As Social Media Manager for the Palm Springs Air Museum.

Wings Over America

July 2, 1926 the Air Corps Act became law creating the United States Army Air Corps. A history which went on to become the United States Army Air Forces on June 20, 1941. Today as we know, it is now the United States Air Force created in 1947. A proud heritage of aviation and service from 92 years ago today.

Thank You to Palm Springs Air Museum friend Brooks Wachtel, Emmy Award Winner and Co-Creator of the History Channel series “DogFights” for this moment in history.

#DONTJUSTDOITDOMORE

Still find this motivating after all these years! I know you won’t admit it, but you do too! Now do something like go to the gym and stop just taking about it!

The Spitfire

Mick Dawson talking about the Spitfire. Mick was a young man in England working at an airbase during World War II. One of the very very interesting people I get to meet shooting photographs and video and managing the social media for the Palm Springs Air Museum.

Climb in the cockpit of the Supermarine Spitfire yourself! This is an incredible opportunity! The British fighter aircraft that is a hero of the Battle of Dunkirk and the exciting motion picture “Dunkirk”!

Open Cockpit Saturday June 30th from 10:30am – 12:30pm at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Check it out!

Mr. Natural Olympia Talks Cardio

My work in bodybuilding and fitness as a photographer has allowed me to meet some great people. Like my friend Mr. John Hansen who has the title as the very first Mr. Natural Olympia.

Here in a segment of video we did at Palm Springs Fitness Center. Treadmill and StairMaster, how and why from a guy who really knows his stuff.

Pay The Writer! And Me Too!

Harlan Ellison has passed away today at the age of 84. Who is Harlan Ellison you are asking. An extraordinarily talented and visionary science fiction writer who was actually the imagination that brought us the Terminator and some of the most iconic episodes of Star Trek, the Outer Limits and Babylon 5. https://bit.ly/2Msx4NN

He was also just vicious as a businessman protecting his creative rights as in this video. Concepts that I truly embrace and a video I have not been shy about sending to companies who have asked me for something for free.

The Missouri From A Cessna

Have you been watching all of my aviation photography and video work with the Palm Springs Air Museum. Here is the USS Missouri in Long Beach from the mid 1980’s when most of my flying was in a Cessna 172.
