I just discovered LiveATC (much to the dismay of my family since I now listen to feed practically non-stop. LOL) but started out plane spotting at NAS Fort Worth JRB aka Carswell Airfield.  I have also worked at an aviation museum giving tours and helping out with maintenance on WWII bombers (B-17G and B-25) at Meacham and frequented Alliance Airport Fort Worth on the weekends to watch the military birds fly in from around the state.  I grew up about 15 minutes from IAH so that airport is like my home and have always loved watching the planes fly over our house.  I am excited to join the community:)

Not sure if I ever introduced myself, so allow me.
I'm a video producer which I've been doing for about 15 years.
My love for aviation can be linked to a very young age, I've always live to watch airplanes, and love gazing into the sky and dream about being in the clouds. One day I would love to take my video production skills and combine it with aviation.
Also just started using a  DJI Phantom 2 Vision+  in my video production.

Controller at Memphis Center
You may have made an appearance on my feed depending on your sector. Smiley

I don't think any of the sectors I work are on this site.

Not trying to split hairs on you Dave, but seeing "Air Traffic Controller (hobbyist, VATSIM, IVAO, etc.)" makes my skin crawl. It's like a guy who plays a lot of Call of Duty calling himself a soldier.

That makes your skin crawl? If they walk into a facility as a trainee and say they're ATC's because of VATSIM then they are going to get made fun of.  However,  this is a site that mostly has enthusiasts so it's no big deal. As is said time after time in real facilities, grow thicker skin.

I used to do VATSIM when I was a teenager. Looking back on it, I don't think it is particularly useful for real world application but it was fun and to try to belittle someone because they identify on this website as being a virtual controller is childish.

As I recall, the comment got all the attention it earned.  smiley
