It is a certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business (SDVOB} by the Department of Veterans Affairs (CVE) and certified by the State of New Jersey and the State of New York He is also an FAA licensed drone pilot. John hasn’t looked back since the time he stepped into the commercial drone imagery business. In 2018, his company became an Independent partner with DroneBase. His hard work and excellent dedication to his work made him win several accolades like the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans Business Pitch Award Recipient and more recently the State of New Jersey American Legion Veteran Breakthrough Startup Business Award.
