Todd pretty much grew up around the Drop Zone. With both parents as skydivers, it’s only natural that he would want to get into the sport as soon as he could. He’s been packing parachutes since he was 14! He has packed hundreds of parachutes and has a perfect record. Todd was recently nominated by Representative AL Lawson to apply to both USMC (West Point) and the USAF Academy
