drone work

I received my Part 107 certification in May 2020, certifying me to fly drones for commercial purposes. I have also since purchased my own drone, a DJI Air 2S. As of June 2021, I have 17 hours of flight time.

I am looking to perform drone work for hire. If you are interested, contact me.
