How many years in the sport?

When you were a kid, were there any early activities that might indicate you’d one day become a skydiver?
I loved anything fast and fun as a kid. Faster the better.

What was the circumstance that led you to the DZ for the first time to make your very first skydive?
My buddy Adam wanted to go skydiving for a bachelor party. It was all over with after my feet hit the ground.

What made you want to continue skydiving after your first jump?
It’s amazing! Come on look at that view.

What’s the best / most memorable skydive you’ve ever made?
I would say probably when I made my first balloon jump. Beautiful sunset ride up and the homeowners face was priceless. Landed in his front yard!

If you could jump with anyone in the world, who would you like to jump with and why?
I’ve jumped with so many industry greats already. I would say my Dad. He was Airborne but wouldn’t let me take him.

As an instructor, what has been one of the most meaningful jumps you’ve made with a student?
Definitely when I took Kate on a tandem. She was blind but still found the courage to conquer many things like rock climbing, water skiing and flying. She truly is an amazing person.

What about your daily work at Skydive City contributes to FUN at Skydive City?
Me running around the DZ yelling “SEND IT!”

What is most gratifying about your work at Skydive City?
I get to do what I love and teach people how to do what I love.
