I have been skydiving since my first static-line jump December 21, 1974 at Borderland Air Sports Center in San Diego, California.  In 1981 I was a member of the U.S. Parachute Team - "Mirror Image" who won the World Championships in the 8-way event in Zephyrhills Florida.

In 1982 I was on the National Champion 10-way team - "Freak Brothers".  That year also marked my first trip to Europe as a member of the U.S. Parachute Team, winning the 4-way and 8-way events at the World Cup in Graz Austria.

In 1983 I began teaching students how to skydive using the Accelerated Freefall method (AFF).  During that time I also helped implement the AFF program in Holland, Italy and Switzerland while working with the School of Human Flight.

Throughout the rest of the '80s and into the early '90s I travelled to Europe and coached national skydiving teams from Sweden, Finland, Germany, Holland, Italy and Switzerland.


Since 1995 I've been the chief skydiving instructor at Parachutes Over San Diego, teaching static line and AFF.  For fun I like to freefly.
