Richard McGrath “Finding Freedom” Audio in player below!
On this Episode of Finding Freedom we interview Steven Bird Author, Homesteader, Pilot, and Veteran. I’m excited to talk to Steven as I enjoy his books starting with The Homefront series and then The Shepherd.
Steven Bird was born in 1973, deep in the Appalachian Mountains of Harlan County, Kentucky. Upon graduation from high school, he joined the U. S. Navy. He served eleven years on active duty, obtaining the rank of Chief Petty Officer before transferring to the Naval Reserves. Transferring to the reserves allowed him to pursue a professional flying career, while continuing to serve his country, ultimately retiring after twenty years of service.
While on active duty, he earned a BS degree in eBusiness as well as all the professional flight certificates necessary to begin his new career. Once in the reserves, he worked as a flight instructor, charter pilot, airline first officer, airline captain. Currently the captain of a super-midsized business jet based out of Knoxville, Tennessee.
Steven, along with his wife and two young daughters, currently live on a farm on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee where they raise cattle, sheep, chickens, ducks, and bees, as well as growing their own fruits and vegetables. In addition, they are currently pursuing their dream of building an off-grid, self-sustainable home, as well as developing the land to suit their desire for a true self-sufficient lifestyle.
Over the years, he has been heavily involved in competitive shooting, off-road motorcycle racing, snowboarding, hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, and of course, writing.
