Welcome to the awkward page where I have to write about myself, conveying my skills and strengths while somehow still remaining grounded and modest?!



  • Master rated hang glider pilot
  • Photographer
  • Videographer
  • Published writer
  • Certified instructor (hang gliding and alpine skiing)
  • Instructor trainer
  • Loving husband and father
  • Paraglider pilot (but don’t tell anyone)


I live my life with my head in the clouds—I’m a dreamer, in all aspects of the word. I’m an expert hang glider pilot, and a creative story-teller behind the lens. But, I try to be so much more than that to my wolf pack; a loving husband to my oddly supportive wife Desiree, and a full-time stay-at-home father to my daredevil mini-me of a daughter, Scarlett.  I might spend a bit too much time adventuring to win husband-of-the-year, but I certainly bring my passion for adventure, strive for perfection, and quirky sense of humor into all aspects of my life.  I’d say my personality is a unique blend of youthful exuberance and experienced vigilance.  In the age of “send it, brah!”, I like to think I’m a (refreshingly) calculated person- ready to accept risk in the name of living life, but only doing so in an educated and sustainable way that gets me home for supper with the family.
