Supporting Sport Promotions is a multi-tiered opportunity to support our current Sports Promotion Director in more robust and personal internal sport communications, devote a committee to Sport Promotions, as well as promote transparency of what decisions are being made on behalf of the sport at meetings and USPA business, as well as finding unique, out-of-the-box ideas in supporting our competitive athletes.
Representing Vertical Disciplines
Currently, the Board of Directors is made up of DZO’s, DZM’s, Examiners, formation skydivers, demo jumpers, and wingsuit flyers. I believe the Board should be represent all disciplines and aspects of the sport, and I offer experience as a former DZO, current AFF-I, S&TA, Demo Jumper, Formation Skydiving and Freefly world record holder and offer to be a voice for the freeflying community with a balanced perspective.
I am in a unique situation where I have the unusual combination of vast experience and youth: I have 11,000+ skydives and am still active in the sport on a demo team, organizing world records and instructing; as well as have a marketing, keynote speaking, and business background. I have a lot of passion and energy as well as a great understanding of our sport to continue giving back that will be fresh and relevant.
Running for USPA
To serve the sport which has given so much to me. My mission is to help continue moving the sport forward by utilizing my unique and diverse skill set and aiding the communication and promotion of our sport within and out of the industry.
Why USPA National
I have had the privilege of engaging with the sport of skydiving in a variety of roles, and I believe this gives me a unique perspective of the sport. Over the decades, I have not only witnessed great changes to the sport, but I have also played an active role in inspiring changes within the sport to improve the safety of its participants and to encourage increased competitive participation through developing, hosting, and organizing events in newly emerging disciplines. At this point, I am still active within the sport and continue to travel as a skydiving ambassador nationally for events, world records, and demos. I intend, while continuing to be active in the sport, to shift my attention to dedicate the time and effort required to properly serve the skydiving community as the USPA National Director. I feel my diverse experiences, and active role in the sport would make me a great candidate for the board, especially a national director position!
