Where and when did you start jumping? I made my first skydive on my 16th birthday at Skydive USA (SUSA). My instructors were my parents and my ground school instructor was a good friend, Tom Bryant, who was sharing his birthday with me.

What made you try skydiving? I was a DZ kid from a very early age and spent most of my weekends loading planes, packing parachutes and catching tandems at my Dad's, Chuck Akers, DZ.

Joined Airspeed: 2013

Hobbies: Basketball, Snow Boarding, Weight Lifting, Canopy Piloting Competitions, Poker

What was your path to Airspeed? I changed my focus from College to skydiving in 2007. I left Texas and started packing for Fastrax where I met people like Thomas Hughes, Nicklas Hemlin and Stuart Shoenfeld who helped me with work and competition opportunities.

Most memorable jump: 2012 - my mom, dad, and sister did our first four way at Skydive Spaceland. We turned more points than Airspeed.

What made you start competing? I have always had a need to push myself and stack myself up next to my peers.

Plans for the future: Win CP Nationls, Win FLCPA 2016, make another US CP team, Win at CP Worlds, win a world championship in 4-way FS.
