I have about a dozen Nationals metals in 4, 8, and 16 way. I have participated in in about a dozen big way world records, including the current 400 way, three point 217 way and four point 57 way (SOS). Skydive Carolina has been my home DZ since 1986 and I have been a member of Carolina Ice (off and on) since 2005. I am truly blessed to have SDC as my home DZ.
