Where are you from?

Arizona Native

Have you ever lived anywhere else?

I have done a season at Skydive Dallas, a couple of seasons at Skydive Milwaukee. If bootcamp counts I went in San Diego and then spent 9 months in Afghanistan.

What are your non-skydiving related hobbies?

I used to rock climb and surf but I was in a pretty bad accident and messed up my ankle so now I can't do much of that anymore. Now I like fly fishing and aquaponic gardening.

What is your favorite movie?

Fast Times at Ridgemont High

What is your favorite food?

Pizza, I was raised with the Ninja Turtles

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Hopefully flying full time as a pilot somewhere.

Do you have any words of wisdom you like to live by?

Old age is a privilege denied to many


Everything in moderation, sometimes that includes moderation.
