My name is Reid Gillette.

I am a product-minded Software Engineer. Starting out with a career in Civil Engineering gave me a unique problem-solving foundation and skills in adapting solutions when unexpected situations arrise.

I got my private pilot's license in 2011 and it was one of the most rewarding thing I've done. I love the challenge it presents with a real, tangible feeling of success. I also remain very close friend with my initial flight instructior and it was through him I met my mentor that encouraged me to get into software development.

While life regularly gets in the way of flying I have gotten to do all sorts of cool things like fly over the Golden Gate Bridge and spend some time doing aerobatics. Soon I will begin working towards my instrument rating.
