An alumnus, wannabe pilot, blogger and foremost Gen Y AvGeek, I am the founding editor of YPPHUpdates - a leading source of news and information from Perth Airport, Western Australia.

Inspired by the events of Malaysia Airlines flight 17, I decided to begin writing about the aviation world, and as a passionate follower, do it based on those in the trade, both past and present - in order to deliver my personal take on the aviation industry, both locally and globally.

I strive to:

Advise my followers on the very latest in aviation news through Twitter.

Offer my opinion on key aviation events like the Malaysia Airlines double tragedy.

Publish localised content via YPPHUpdates and possesses knowledge about the Western Australian aviation industry, when it comes to hand.

As a freelance writer, I am available to provide specific comment on aspects pertaining to aviation in Western Australia.

Views are solely MY own and not of YPPHUpdates or wherever I end up.

You can also find me regularly posting on SkyscraperCity and Jetspotter forums.
