I made my first skydive in February 2006 at Skydive Snohomish. I've made 304 skydives to date, hold a USPA C-license and have more than 18 hours of tunnel time under my belt. My favorite skydiving discipline is 4-way formation skydiving.
I am an FAA certified Senior Parachute Rigger, rated for both back and seat type parachute systems. I can assemble and pack both main and reserve canopies as well as perform maintenance services. I have considerable sewing skills, having professionally operated industrial sewing machines for many years.
I started packing parachutes at Skydive Snohomish in April 2007. I was an athlete and parachute packing was my sport. In May 2008, I earned my parachute rigger certification and began managing the company's fleet of parachute systems. I spent 3½ years with Skydive Snohomish, racking up thousands of parachute pack jobs and dozens of saves. Those were good times.
In June 2010, I started working at Para-Phernalia building and packing the Softie line of emergency parachutes.
I worked at iFLY Seattle from March 2013 to August 2022 (nearly 9½ years) where I accomplished many good things.
