The Latest from Shenella Karunaratne
Darrell Davis is a recovered fearful flyer. His first flights were true white-knuckle affairs, filled with anxiety from boarding the plane to takeoff to landing, but he is now an avid flyer.
He currently oversees content strategy at a digital media organization, but previously spent 10 years in the psychology field. The fusion of these worlds inspired FlyFright, in the hope that anyone can learn to enjoy the wonders of air travel.
Apart from this about section and his contributions to the FlyFright website, Darrell is no longer associated with FlyFright.com and has since moved on to other endeavors.
