I most enjoy instructing students and filming first-time tandem jumpers, but high-performance canopy piloting is a close third.
In this photo, I'm throwing a barrel roll at 70mph above Abilene, KS on my 100 sqft Skylark Odyssey.
As the President of the K-State Parachute Club, I've had my hand in just about every aspect of the business. Customer service, marketing, web design, instructing, freefall photography, BS (bureaucratic stuff), graphic design, you name it. Above all, I am comitted to making our club and our sport as safe as possible.
I began piano lessons at the age of 4 and have played ever since.
While at O'Fallon Township High School, I played tuba for 4 years in the Wind Ensemble and Marching Band under the direction of the incredible Dr. G (bottom right). I'll never forget the musical opportunities I've had made possible by the OTHS band program, especially our Wind Ensemble performance at Carnegie Hall.
Although I am not currently playing in any ensembles, I enjoy practicing piano. High on my list of pieces to learn is Grainger's piano solo arrangement of Rachmaninoff's Concerto #2 in C Minor.
