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.

SKYDIVING ACHIEVEMENTS:

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.
