My passion for traveling can be traced back to my childhood in South Africa. The goal was to travel the
world and since then I have visited and lived in more than 54 countries on 4 continents. With this came
a broad understanding of, and appreciation for, different nationalities and their customs. It also brought
with it incredible opportunities.
As personal assistant to Joe Lewis, the Billionaire financier, I was introduced to the world of private yachting and aviation. It was aboard his Dassault Falcon 900 that my interest in aviation began and lead to a position in 2000 with Netjets – the fractional aircraft ownership innovator.
After four years with Netjets I transition into aircraft management, working with an Australian
developer to ensure that his aircraft were operated and maintained to the highest of standards.
Then came the great recession in 2008 and I assisted GE in selling these repossessed aircraft and
segwayed into aircraft sales. This was the opportunity to apply everything I had learned about the world
of private aviation – or so I thought.
The next 8 years would be an epic journey with Tempus Jets. The start up corporation was involved in intelligence and surveillance, top secret missions in Africa, aircraft management, marketing, maintenance, sales, leasing and charter. I soaked up every part of it and gained some of the most unique experience in the business.
With this incredible foundation I decided to work closer to home and founded my own company in 2016. Since starting EVO AVIA, I have been honored to work with fortune 500 companies, celebrities, international high net worth individuals, gaming tycoons and entertainers. My mission is to provide a creative solution to aircraft ownership, ensuring that clients financial goals are met in a tailored fashion and to continue to provide support once the aircraft acquisition process is complete.
