My name is Lieutenant Mark R. Kurzinski, USN(Ret.) and I am originally from Syracuse NY where I joined the Navy in 1993 and circumnavigated the world 3 times in my 20 years of service to this country. During my tour of duty, I was fortunate to be selected to an officer commissioning program and attended and ultimately received, a Bachelor's degree in Communication/Broadcast Journalism from the University of San Diego. After retirement, I founded MidWest Drone Services in Cary IL blending multiple passions of flying, photography and video/audio editing. I am a certificated FAA multi-engine private pilot and Part 107 sUAS drone pilot and have over 600 hours of total fixed-wing flying experience. I am the proud father of 2 boys and have been happily married for over 7 years! Thank you for reading my bio!
