Former First Officer (A320, Dash-8 Q400) with a previous background in Web Development

London, UK/Hong Kong

Born and raised in the vibrant city of Hong Kong, the love of aviation was imparted into me from a very young age. Attending university in New York allowed me to take up flying lessons during school breaks in Toronto, where I have family. Gaining my PPL in 2015, I set my sight on making aviation a career. As I hold British Citizenship, I came to UK to complete my flying training, qualifying in 2017.

With determination and persistence, I was brought on as a First Officer by Flybe, flying the Dash-8 Q400 based out of Glasgow. The company gave me fantastic platform to develop my flying skills as well as my non-technical competencies. Logging just shy of 1000 hours on type, I made the jump to British Airways in 2020, where I was placed on the A320 fleet. I had completed the ground school exams, and was due to start the simulator phase of training when my type rating course was suspended.

Although I remain passionate about aviation, my background was in technology. I hold bachelor and master degrees in Information Management, where my concentration was in web development. I was passionate about using technology to create practical solutions to solve business problems. I had two years work experience as a front-end web developer in a C#/.Net programming environment. While I have tried to keep in touch with the latest trends and developments in the field of technology, I must admit my skills are somewhat rusty. That said I promise to do everything I can to catch up, and to become a valuable asset to your team.

Graduated a year early from a 4-year bachelor’s degree, where my concentration was in Web Services Development.

Achieving Dean’s List academic standing, I was brought on as a Peer Advisor by the university. I was assigned a couple first-year students, meeting with them weekly to help with their assimilation to university life. Peer Advisors also gave tours to prospective students, in essence acting as an ambassador for the university.

I was also invited by two of my professors to act as their teaching assistant. Not only did I assist in class, I was given a certain amount of grading responsibilities. Moreover, I held office hours every week to aid students with their course work.
