Mike did his first jump in 1986 and has accumulated more than 2000 jumps and 25 hours of freefall time since then. A substantial number of these jumps has been made wit a camera on his head, firmly establishing Mike as one of the leading videographers in skydiving - it shows in his work!
Mike owned and ran the video concession at Skydive Chicago between 1994 and 1997. This summer he will be heading up the video crew for the 2000 World Record attempt at Skydive Chicago.
Mike is no stranger to photographing big-ways and his resume of freefall photography credits are impressive to say the least. It includes serving as the 1994 World Record Attempt videographer, 1995 Womens World Record Attempt Video Crew Chief, 1995 World Record Attempt Video Crew Chief, 1998 Ohio State Record Attempt and 1998 World Record 246 Way Video Crew Chief. Mike was also the videographer of the 1999 US National FS 10 way Gold Medal Team - Skydive Chicago STL.
Mike is a Senior Rigger and runs and owns Aerial Dynamics, Inc. I hope you enjoy his galleries on Dropzone.com as much as I did!
