Deland, FL, USA
I was born in Venezuela in 1971 to Portuguese parents. At a very young age, I moved to Portugal where I was raised and educated. I was accepted into the Portuguese Air Force Academy at the age of 17. Upon graduating from the AFA in 1993, I was selected to attend Pilot Training in the US, where I flew T-37s and T-38s. I received my US Air Force Wings in January 1994. I then returned to Portugal and was assigned to the 502 Squadron, where I flew the Casa 212. Eventually, I moved to the US, where I flew for a large airline before attending law school at UF, Gainesville, Florida. Today, I practice law with his wife, Kim Simoes, in Deland, FL. In addition to flying, I dedicate a large portion of my free time to photography, a passion I discovered during my 1st visit to Africa in 2008, when I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. What started as a photographic curiosity in 2008 has grown into an obsession, especially after my trips to the Galapagos and Antarctica.
