What part of skydiving do you like more, the freefall or the canopy flight and why?
Always loved the the freedom of freefall and will never love it any less. However, since I have been flying my new canopy, I have loved that almost as much!
What are your favorite skydiving skills to work on in the air?
Keeping my body as stable as I can, no matter the discipline or maneuver. And learning to freefly of course!
What bit of advice or bit of coaching has stuck with you and been the most help?
Be humble and aware. Listen to all the advice you can from the experienced folk, then take that piece of advice, and ask 5 more experienced people for their opinions. Then make you're decision whether to accept that advice or not and don't be afraid to ask!
If you could take a trip anywhere in the World to skydive for a day, where would it be and why?
Alaska. I love the mountains and the glaciers. Plus, I heard from an old timer that you can actually see the slight curvature of the earth.. now that is really cool!
If you could give a shout out to another collegiate skydiver, who would it be and why?
First, Clint Frost.. we have become really great friends and I have collegiate skydiving to thank for it. Second, all those crazy mother f*ckers at Lake Wales and Z-Hills during collegiates and New Years.. we had such a blast with everyone and we can't wait for next year!!
