I was born in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, but raised in Jozini, Kwa-Zulu Natal and a Diver at heart. School Holidays was spent on the beach and in the ocean at Sodwana Bay. My Passion for acting started at a young age when I was approached by my arts teacher to play the lead as “Joseph” in that year’s school play, “Joseph and his technicolor dream coat”. In 2006, I moved to Saldanha bay Naval Base to conduct my basic training and upon completion, reported to Simon’s Town Naval Base Diving Centre. I worked at the Naval Diving Centre until mid- 2007, but reported for duty aboard SAS Spioenkop (Naval Warship) later that year and for the rest of my stay in the SA Navy. I resigned from the SA Navy at the end of 2009 to further pursue my childhood passion for Acting, after it had been re-ignited back in 2007, when a Production Company came to shoot the one part series, “Diver’s Down”, at the Naval Diving Base where I was stationed. Since then, I performed numerous small roles in Films and TV Shows with goals and aspirations to become a successful actor in the industry. Years later and struggling in the industry I started a Photography business in 2017 shooting headshots for actors in the industry and also specializing in Real Estate Photography. I also worked in the hospitality industry during this time working my way up to head of staff at a fine dining Italian Restaurant in the Bellville area of Cape Town. December 2018 I made the very hard decision to hang up my Actor’s hat and retire from the industry as I needed to make a change. So with a fire in my belly and a pursuit of a new career I embarked on an old passion within the boating world. I completed my Yacht Master Coastal and SAS Day Skipper certificate followed by a plane ticket to Nice, France. I spent a month walking countless amount of steps that would make “Discovery Vitality” proud on the docks of the various harbors handing out my cv in an attempt to book work as crew on board. With a few days worth of day work under the belt and finally booking an interview for a possible crew position, my visa expired and I needed to come home. Luckily I was being strongly considered for a position aboard but I needed to wait for the boat to come out of the drydock. With this I flew back to SA with a hopeful heart knowing that I would soon return to France. As things go, the opportunity was cancelled (Owner preferred a merger of the two available roles and he preferred a female). What to do now? Unemployed and with depleted finances of not being able to return I started looking for work and was unemployed until Sept the same year when I finally got an opportunity to begin work as a Junior Site Supervisor for a Construction Business (not ideal, but hey challenge accepted and gotta pay dem bills son!). I have since then worked for the same company, building weigh bridges, expanding warehouses, pouring concrete floors and laying paving. I have learned so much and have grown allot since then. Recently I approached and dusted off my photography equipment again and am in the process of starting this up as well. Being in the construction industry has sparked allot of ideas and have given me a new passion for real estate, especially as an Investor. People tend to describe me as ambitious, hardworking, punctual and goal-oriented. I have high attention to detail and work really well in both a team environment and on my own. I am pro-active, a problem solver and creative at heart. I won’t stop until the project or task is completed. More personally I enjoy the outdoors, love being fit and healthy and spending my off time with my most valuable assets; family and friends. Short term goals: – To learn and grow the new skills required to perform given tasks efficiently and with excellence. -To prove myself a valuable asset, as a hardworking, dependable and trustworthy individual to my fellow colleagues, managers and seniors. Long term goals: -To become one of the best in my department and be seen as the go to guy for a specific job or task. -To become manager and coach to younger generations looking to enter my industry. -To eventually run a team of managers, teaching them to effectively run their teams with excellence. I believe in serving others with excellence. The effort you put in will reap the results you desire. I also believe that being truthful, respectful and trustworthy are very important keys to success and I strive to live by these principles daily.

The Airworthiness Directive Toolbox is offered by Zook Aviation, a family owned and operated business. Our Founder, Reuben Zook, discovered his passion for aviation in the 1970's. To support his appetite for flying, he worked as line service and then served as parts room manager in the 1980’s. Reuben began working with computerized AD research in 1990, when there were very few alternatives to microfiche and paper. With experience on the ramp, parts room and in the cockpit, he finally found his niche in maintenance and compliance. Reuben has spent the past 30 years dedicating his work towards delivering an accurate and reliable regulatory library to IA's and Maintenance Technicians. April Zook (Reuben’s wife), launched her aviation career in 1998, now totaling 21 years of experience with the general aviation industry. As our Customer Service and Marketing Manager, her mission is to educate our customers on the features and functions of the AD Toolbox through the Zook Aviation Help Blog and social media. April Zook’s artistic and creative talents help transform Zook Aviation into a lively and colorful business. It's a reflection of who and what we are! As a small family business, we are dedicated to treating each and every customer with personal attention. When you call, you will be directly connected to a live person who truly cares about addressing your concerns. This philosophy has helped our business grow rapidly as shown by the map animation representing our customer base in the lower 48 states.

Aerobatic airplanes have come a long way, developing from the early pioneers over the necessities of military flying to the highly specialized airplanes we see at competitions and airshows today. General aviation airplanes have developed towards more speed, more comfort, more range, better avionics, improved safety. We asked ourselves: ‘Wouldn’t it be cool to combine the best of both worlds?’ and went to work. The result is the GB1 GameBird. Founded in 2013 by Steuart Walton and Philipp Steinbach, Game Composites started out with a rare combination of experience, skills, determination and the budget to see the project through. The 4 heads strong Game Composites design team around Philipp initially worked out of an office container at Wickenby Airfield in the UK. Operation in the new facility was started in October 2016, hiring and training production team members and over the course of the next 2 years, working through the Conformity Plan with the FAA MIDO. The first GB1 GameBird manufactured in the Bentonville facility had its maiden flight in November of 2018. It was the first type certified airplane ever produced in Arkansas. GB1 SN0001 received its FAA Standard Airworthiness Certificate in May 2019, shortly after the FAA Production Certificate was issued for Game Composites. In 6 focused years, a small team of dedicated people was able to translate an idea into a beautiful and capable aircraft that enables you to fly without compromise.
