A Quick Bio: In the nearly half a century I've been given on this earth, I've had the privilege of learning the value of good people and had the fortune to find them in many corners of my world. Skydiving gives expression to my energy and desire to excel in an arena where the whole is more than the sum of its parts. The simplicity of enjoying a beer at sunset after a day of skydiving with comrades, be it at Nationals, a world record, or fun jumping, fulfills me.
Interview Why is it important to you to be a Participant of Jump For The Cause 2005? In my profession of medical imaging, I contact people each day with health challenges, and many among them are dealing with the ravages of breast cancer. Their courage in the face of such adversity taps the wellspring of strength women over the ages have drawn from in times of need. There has been a fantastic amount of progress made through research, but there is so much yet to be accomplished. It is important to me to participate in Jump For The Cause 2005, simply because I can help.
