I am an expert in all things skydiving, gear, and canopy flight related. I can also offer advice on fear of heights or anxiety. I differ from most in that I can get into detail of the physics behind it all, effects on the body/mind, etc. I am also an expert related to gear, packing, and rigging. Expert in student training, tandem jumping, and high performance canopy flight-swooping.
