Nathan is an erstwhile inventor, researcher and business owner. He was a Fireman in a small Texas town and traveled the country as part of a vintage rally race car team. He is now SWAT Sniper qualified and a Patrolman for a Texas police department. He is a graduate of Harvard and Texas A&M San Antonio. Introduced to the CAF by Lefty Gardner in the early 90's, he started his CAF journey with the Central Texas Wing in San Marcos Texas. In his spare time he does the bidding of a moody cat, a wonderful dog and a magnificent wife. He occasionally shows up in a fun movie. Sometimes he can be found committing acts of aviation on an unsuspecting sky.
The CAF Red Tail Squadron is a volunteer-driven organization dedicated to educating audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel. Learn more at www.redtail.org.
