I made my first jump October 18, 2008 with another soldier in my old military unit, once my feet hit the ground, I signed up for Accelerated Free Fall and started the next weekend. Since that time and despite 2 combat deployments, I’ve accumulated over 500 jumps, earned my USPA D-License, Coach, Tandem Instructor and Accelerated Free Fall Instructor ratings as well as my FAA Senior Parachute Rigger certificate. I came to Skydive Tampa in the middle of 2011 and was welcomed with open arms. I love jumping with students (AFF, tandem students and video) because of the excitement they bring, it’s contagious and addictive!
I’m at the DZ almost every weekend and can be found either shooting/editing video, teaching students, packing both main and reserve parachutes or helping keep our gear in the best condition for your jump!
