How I got into Skydiving: JaNette convinced me to get in the Orlando wind tunnel
What I like best about 4-way: I love flying hard and fast and I love competition. The challenge to your focus, attitude, agility, stamina, teamwork, coordination and communication is very rewarding.
Favorite moments with the team: In the landing area, giving the thumbs up to my teammates, and getting a smile and a thumbs up back.
Favorite Movie: My Blue Heaven
Outside of Skydiving, one day I hope to: Have a great family, beat my personal best in the 5K, get good at the tenor sax
