I’ve been in this business for over 20 years now.  The path to where I am today is paved with great adventures and great misadventures.  Overall, I’ve had an incredible career.  These articles are a window into my experiences around the world.

ROB HARRIS - Live while you live.  We met by chance on a dz I’d visit perhaps once a month. Freestyle was new and camera flyers talked about how challenging it was to follow....

bad guy on Don
DAYS LIKE THIS - 5:30 AM: Malaysia, 6000 feet above the ground in an A-Star helicopter. We were in our third day of filming a skydiving sequence for an Indian movie called “Don”.....

SKYDIVING CARS - To date, I believe I've filmed over 200 skydiving vehicles.  Flying with Cars and Objects has become a specialty.  I know a lot about making them fly.....

(my job)  - In this article, I’ll try to give you an idea of what goes into bidding, planning, and filming for a production, and some of the things that can happen along the way.

FILMING A TIRE - Our problem out the gate was not knowing a thing about how tires fall at terminal velocity....

HELICOPTERS AND WIRES - ... the pilot took us down low for a cool shot. out of the corner of my eye i saw a glint of sun from a cable strung across the field.

CATCHING A PLANE - The producers called to see how things were going with “my” project and all I could tell them was that we had no helicopter camera, no drogue, and a dust storm.

FLYING IMAX - The location was spectacular. The shoreline is carved into a tangle of inland waterways and our drop zone was a small island with palm trees and green grass surrounded by water and bridges.

MTV BASE - When I learned to B.A.S.E. jump, I did it on MTV Sports....

PEPSI "GOOSE" - When we had the number one rated Super Bowl ad :-)

I have another ten articles just about ready to post, and probably a hundred stories journaled.  This page is a work in progress and will just get better .....  JJ
