Last year (editing now to say in 2015...) I took a leap of faith (pun intended ha) and drove across the country to take a position managing digital communications at Skydive Chicago for the 2015 season. Leaving Austin was hard but being a part of this, even behind the scenes, is everything that is awesome, out of the ordinary, and the adventures I welcome in life. This was a side project I took on, as I was inundated with footage during SDC's 2015 Summerfest boogie, an annual event which also happened to be host to the most current Vertical World Record set. There are more professional videos out there, but I had footage and just couldn't resist the chance to show this epic story unfold! I worked on this on and off since the record which was officially set on Friday, July 31, 2015—Thank you to y'all who encouraged me to do so and thank you to Rook Nelson for this most amazing experience!
