I got what most would consider a late introduction into aviation. Growing up in a small town I never had the opportunity to be around aviation. I’ve always loved art and design and spent most of my high school years teaching myself graphic art and design. Although a hobby of mine, at the time I had never considered it career worthy. I picked up the auto body repair trade while in college and excelled in the craft. I was quickly bored and looking for the next challenge.

Then came the biggest turning point in my life and career. A friend of mine had been working at an aircraft maintenance facility that was adding on a paint facility. Excited, I ran down and applied for a position. Fatefully I was hired and an entire new world of opportunities was opened up to me. I fell in love with aviation and began to learn the trade. I began striping aircraft and learning how to handle every curve of the airframe to create beautiful designs and layouts. This is when I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Plane Schemer was BORN!

For me, my introduction to aviation was less direct than others. I grew up in Huntsville, AL, a city well renowned for its rich history of aeronautical sciences. My mother has worked under NASA for as long as I can remember, and because of this I have been fortunate to experience some of the benefits of living in “the Rocket City”!

While still in college, I met Jonathan and began learning more about the aviation industry. This led me to my first airshow, Airventure Oshkosh, where I found my love for aviation. I joined the Plane Schemer team, and now I work on graphics, web development, SEO, and even some scheme design! If you see us at your next airshow, be sure to come say, “Hello!”.

I am an industrial design student currently living and studying in Cracow, Poland. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a fan of drawing cars and anything related to vehicles and transport – like planes, ships, spaceships etc. I could spend the whole day on it and considered drawing and sketching as the most exciting of my hobbies. I was upskilling since that time and now it’s not just a hobby, but an incredible career.

Besides automotive design, a very exciting thing for me is aviation. As a child, I had a large collection of plastic kit-models of various airplanes – from US fighter planes of WWII to heavy cargo planes of Soviet era. I no longer have this collection but, a passion to render and illustrate beautiful airplanes. I am very excited to be a part of Plane Schemer Design Studio and look forward to each and every exciting new challenge.
