As a kid growing up in the late 1960’s and 1970’s, I had a fascination for radio controlled cars, boats and especially my favorite… toy helicopters. Unfortunately, it was seldom that the financial resources to acquire my own were available, but on the rare occasion that I did get one, it was usually the Christmas or Birthday gift and usually wasn’t much in terms of quality. Fast forward to the last few years, and being that I am now supposedly a grownup, trying to be responsible with the budget, I continue finding it difficult to justify splurging on such toys. Nevertheless, I have purchased more than a few RC helicopters and typically within a few minutes from the moment the batteries are charged up enough, I am out crashing my new aircraft to smithereens! Vowing each and every time to be retired from the RC Helicopter hobby, and that I would never buy another, I was suddenly mesmerized by this beautiful white machine with four propellers, called a DRONE.
What a beautiful machine, with its built in camera too! The idea that I could fly up and capture a view of the world below, was more than my past history with RC Aircraft, or my limited budget could do to deter me from whipping out the plastic. I completely submitted to that little kid growing up and was soon watching the FedEx tracking day-by-day, minute-by-minute until my new toy; I mean, DRONE arrived!
To put an ending to this little story, I actually begin a new story. It wasn’t long before this childhood fascination developed into a passion for seeing the world from a higher perspective. It’s easy to understand why people love flying, but to me this may even be better than flying in an airplane, or helicopter for that matter. The freedom to capture aerial views of the world around me, at the exact elevation and angle I want is truly a phenomenal experience.
Which brings us to present day. I made an easy decision that somehow I wanted to turn this new found passion into a service I could provide to the marketplace. I learned very quickly that I am not the first guy to come up with this idea, but regardless of that, I believe that I bring a unique style to the industry. With my 25 year professional background in Corporate IT Consulting and Sales, and my personal background in music and arts, I believe my clients will experience a unique professionalism and care for them and their needs that has become more uncommon in today’s marketplace. In addition, the people we bring into the Gale-Force Drone family will be meticulously chosen as much for their skills as their character.
