My primary responsibility is to safely operate Monsanto corporate aircraft to transport the senior leadership, other employees, and various customers and business guests from one location to another. There’s a lot more to that goes on behind the scenes to keep the department running effectively, but flying the jet is the primary responsibility.
I was a T-38 instructor pilot, and an F-16 fighter pilot. The majority of my flight experience prior to coming to Monsanto was gained in the military. Despite the differences in aircraft, flying is still flying, and so there are a lot of similarities. However, the mission and type of flying that I’m doing now is obviously quite different.
Like most St. Louisans, I’m big into all the local sports teams, and I play on several intramural sports teams as well. Additionally, living in Soulard, I am extremely involved in my neighborhood both socially and in a leadership position on the neighborhood board of directors.
