With his analytical approach to flying big wingsuits and his well documented adventures in terrain flying, he is dedicated to bringing more knowledge and process to what is now an under-coached discipline within wingsuiting. He’s kind of a big deal, and we’re happy to have him based at Skydive Perris. Catch him when you can!
