How many years in the sport?
8

When you were a kid, were there any early activities that might indicate you’d one day become a skydiver?
As a kid videogames would later add base jumping/skydiving from serious like far cry and gta. I’d spend countless hours striving to do more challenges with these activities not really noticing my passion would later develop into a reality

What was the circumstance that led you to the DZ for the first time to make your very first skydive?
After years of watching YouTube I’d follow a channel called aviator. It would cover skydiving to paramotoring only to later bumping into the channels owner at a gas station. Recognizing the vehicle I approach the owner “awkwardly” and asked if he was the guy I assumed. He said yes, later introducing me to his sister they brought me to skydive Tampa were I left my life behind to live on a dropzone for months till an offer to pack parachutes came up. After taking the job I made two tandems in the month of may and by the end of that year had over 100 jumps

What made you want to continue skydiving after your first jump?
The way skydiving came into my life was apparent and ment to happen. I never took myself to a dropzone in search of it the sport literally found me so I had to continue.

What’s the best / most memorable skydive you’ve ever made?
8 way raft dive over Skydive Chicago

If you could jump with anyone in the world, who would you like to jump with and why?
Nobody is special, our passion for the sky is all that matters

What about your daily work at Skydive City contributes to FUN at Skydive City?
Nothing about the job of a packer is fun, we all are under great pressure to ensure the dropzone has the ability to turn loads. If we were non exsistant the dropzone shuts down and the fun is paused with the tasking of packing ones gear. Our ability to turn rigs with the riggers we have contributes to the fun we leave for all that use our service.

What is most gratifying about your work at Skydive City?
The thank you from my customers.
