Face Punch is a 12 year active duty Naval Aviator flying God’s majestic chariot, the venerable Grumman C-2A Greyhound. He is originally from Los Angeles, California and currently lives in San Diego with his wife Megan and two children; Jackie (5) and Lucy (2). He started flying at the age of 12 in upstate New York, and has amassed 2400 hours in multiple aircraft since then. He looks forward to participating in his rookie season, and the realization of a dream he’s had since he was 8 years old, to race at Reno.
