About Us

Feel free to give me a call or send me an e-mail if you have questions about the products from Cumulus Soaring, Inc.  Complex questions are often best discussed over the phone.  The best time to reach me is between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM U.S. Central Time.  I can often also be reached between 8:30 PM and 11 PM U.S. Central Time.  I'm sometimes difficult to reach on weekends because I often spend weekends with my family - but feel free to leave me a message and I'll do my best to get back to you.


I have been flying gliders since 1990. I'm a very technical person who loves talking about soaring, badge flying, soaring instruments, GPSs, etc. I am knowledgeable about badge, record, contest and aerobatic flying, and ready to help you select and use the right instruments and software for your soaring needs. I hold all the FAI Badge legs for my Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond badges - with the exception of the altitude gain legs (which are nearly impossible to obtain in Minnesota). I have flown in many soaring contests, acted as Competition Director in 2 contests, Contest Manager in 2 contests, and have won 10 Minnesota state soaring records. I have owned shares in several sailplanes including a Schempp-Hirth Ventus b and a Schweizer 1-35c. I currently own a share of a lovely DG-1000S. You can see photos of them on my Soaring Photos web page. My best soaring flight so far was an 800+ km OLC (free distance) flight in the DG-1000 with Dick Andrews from Nephi, Utah in 2015 - what a spectacular place to soar! Another favorite flight was a 520 km flight from Minnesota to near Jolliet, Illinois in a Schweizer 1-35c. I am an active member of the Minnesota Soaring Club. I am blessed with an amazing family - which you can see on my personal web site.
