Fun Fact: In 2006 I made my first jump; it was a static line jump at Skydive New Mexico. It wasn’t until 2008 that I had decided to go for my Coach rating. In 2012 I acquired my AFF-I rating, followed by my Tandem rating in 2013. I hit the sky jumping, then decided to cutaway from the real world, pursue my passion, and start skydiving full time in 2015.

Skydiving: Favorite Part: Skydiving gets me in the zone, especially when I'm pushing my comfort zone to learn and experience more. And there's always going to be more to learn and experience, and share and teach.
