My drone career began in 2014 when this tiny black drone my son got for Christmas piqued my interest.
My first drone
He was way too young to fly it, but I tried it inside and it was NOT easy to fly. In fact, whenever I tell people my drone origin story, I mention that: “if you can fly this drone…Mavics, Inspires and Phantoms are easy!” (NOTE: I still have The Neutron, and it works great!)
So, the Neutron got me hooked, and mostly I experimented with toy drones.
In 2015, everything changed.
At the time, I worked for an online marketing company, and we decided to offer drone/aerial photography and videography to our clients. I was also borrowing a neighbor’s Phantom 3 and flying it pretty regularly. He was getting frustrated flying it and had already had a few near-crashes. I tried it to see if I could teach him, and it just made sense. I don’t know if it was the fact that it was actually easier to fly than toy-grade drones, but whatever it was, it was pretty incredible for me. And I was good at it. 😉
It changed my life…and my love for drones and drone-related tech was born. So was rotospace.com. 🚁💨💨💨
Thank you for visiting.
This website is dedicated to the memory of my grandmother, Rita “GG”.
My grandmother, Rita,was a massive source of inspiration to me. She truly lived a long, wonderful life well into her 90s. At least once a day, I wish I could call her to tell her all I’m doing with drones (and my other business ventures), but she knows :)
She always told me to chase my dreams and never sell myself short. I will always honor her memory by living each day like this.
