Who We Are



Video Editor.   

Dennis is the founder, President, and Chief Pilot of LiftedUp Productions, Inc.  Previously named Yellow+BLUE Productions, Inc, from 2009 to 2017, it was known as a website video production company. 


In early 2015, during the beginning of legalized commercial drones, Dennis was co-founder of a start-up that successfully applied and became one of the first businesses in the US to be granted an FAA Section 333 Exception for Commercial Drone flight. 


Dennis left that start-up to continue on his own when in Sept 2016 the new FAA Part 107 eased regulations.  The previous videography business changed to LiftedUp Productions, Inc to better define the addition of drone capabilities. 


Dennis started his aviation career in 1987 by taking flight lessons at the age of 14.  He received his private pilots license in 1991, even before he had his drivers license.  He graduated from the aviation focused Daniel Webster College in 1995 and began 4 years of flight instructing as a CFI. 


Now, after experience at five airlines, he is currently a B777 First Officer flying for a US airline.  With 20 years in the airline industry and more than 13,000+ flight hours, he is committed to this new and exciting part of aviation—drones.  From the age of 9 to 17 he flew radio controlled (RC) gliders and gas powered airplanes that he and his Dad built.  You could say Dennis’ career has come full circle— starting with RC planes and now returning to RC drones. 


He has a passion for the 3D world and wishes to share his aerial views, experience, and abilities to help clients realize their expectations.
