When you were a kid, were there any early activities that might indicate you’d one day become a skydiver?
Was given the pull pin from a smoke canister from a jumper into a Nascar Race when I was but a wee lad…

What was the circumstance that led you to the DZ for the first time to make your very first skydive?
The DZO (Rodger Conley Canton Airsports) answered the phone personally and talked to me about jumping instead of letting the call go to voicemail. That made all the difference.

What made you want to continue skydiving after your first jump?
The staff

What’s the best / most memorable skydive you’ve ever made?
Most memorable skydive was my reserve opening upon deployment of my main. I was able to catch the reserve bridal as it was coming out of the container. Landed under a good main with the reserve bridal in my hand. We determined as I was sitting back to dash in the 182 I must have pushed on the pin enough to release it during main deployment.
