I have been skydiving since September 9, 2006. 

On April 30, 2011 I was in a skydive accident that cost me the use of my left shoulder, arm, and hand. It was from a brachial plexus injury which pulls the nerve roots from the spinal cord. Later that year, I asked my doctor if they could amputate my left arm. The doctors agreed for they knew I would never have feeling or movement in it again and I was at risk of infection that could potentially result in death. 

I am the owner and founder of Clasp life a non-profit organization to help others find resources to better their quality of life due to an adversity, accident, or incident.
