Bryan was born and raised in Normal, IL where he took an interest in aviation and began flying in 2014 at 17 years old. He attended the University of Alabama, Roll Tide, and graduated in the spring of 2019 with a degree in Computer Science. Realizing his heart was in aviation instead of computer science, he moved to New Orleans to earn his instrument, commercial, and CFI ratings with Gulf Coast Aviation while working as a programmer on the side. In his free time, Bryan enjoys whitewater kayaking throughout the southeast, watching Chicago sports teams, and reading. Now proudly a member of the Gulf Coast Aviation team, he looks forward to sharing his knowledge and passion of aviation with students.
