When you were a kid, were there any early activities that might indicate you’d one day become a skydiver?
Nope

What was the circumstance that led you to the DZ for the first time to make your very first skydive?
To get over fear of heights.

What made you want to continue skydiving after your first jump?
I was no longer afraid of heights.

What’s the best / most memorable skydive you’ve ever made?
When I had about 80 jumps Space Center FX 4-way team’s training day was cut short as one of their members had to leave early. They drafted me for a jump as they needed a warm body. As I watched them turning points around me I realized there was a lot more to free fall than you could see in their videos.

What is most gratifying about your work at Skydive City?
Having a jumper walk into the loft after a reserve ride saying: “Thank you, may I have another?”
