Skydiving Background: I made my first jump in September of 1992 (Static Line) and since have accumulated 11,200 jumps. I am currently a Chief Instructor, overseeing all Instructors and student activities, and S&TA At Large. I hold the following ratings; AFF Instructor/Examiner, Coach Examiner, Skydive University Course Director, Tandem Instructor/Examiner (UPT), and Pro Rating. I am also a National Director for the United States Parachute Association. I am currently sponsored by Performance Designs, Sun Path, Alti-2, The Skydive Store, and 2 Donkeys Inc.
One advantage I have is my student and community contact. Each year we have consistently had contact with hundreds of students and given my position at the dropzone, I do have some input on the direction these newer jumpers head. Coupled with dozens of demonstration jumps per year and fund raisers for charities such as Make A Wish, Leap for Life, Jump for a Cure, Jump for Autism, I would be happy and honored to represent jumpers across the country and world. My love for the sport is in education, watching our newer jumpers receive everything from the sport that I have, keeps me motivated.
