Review:

"What I love about my Infinity is that no matter what orientation I fly in, it always hugs my back. It's comfortable and the customer service is incredible."

Bio:

I have been skydiving and BASE jumping since 2003 and am completely in love with flying. I have spent a few years dedicated towards different disciplines; BASE, wingsuiting, then freeflying and swooping, albeit not the conventional order, it has given me a pretty well-rounded arsenal. I love traveling and meeting new people. I think it's important for people to have passion and one thing I love about skydivers are that they are passionate, inspired, open minded people. This year my focus is on competing in 2-way MFS, tunnel flying, the Head-Up and Women's Vertical World Records, and I can't wait to go play in Norway and Switzerland this summer.
