Sun, fun, and Funks!!

I wanted to fly since I was a child, so I became an airplane pilot when I was 15 years old and I have played and worked in the air ever since. I’m an air traffic controller, so I guide airplanes through the sky; as a wingsuit BASE jumper, I guide myself through some pretty wild terrain flights, always remembering my personal philosophy – that we should all be happy and realize how magical our universe it by looking around and being amazed at all of its wonders. I didn’t make it out of the quarterfinals last at last year’s Grand Prix, so I hope to do better in 2015 – but one thing I know for sure: I will love being in China surrounded by beauty and good friends.
