At a young age Sams watched his father leap off a cliff and fly away with his hang-gliding. he was immediately hooked. Before paragliding was invented Sam knew he want to fly, he was always watching birds, clouds and how air flows. When he had his first real job, he worked just enough to pay for a paragliding course , equipment, and the summer to practice and it continues! Work to fly. Currently, Sam works as a paragliding instructor, airplane pilot, and paragliding powered pilot. He is always searching for those raw feeling he only finds in nature and in the sky. He has dabbled with XC and hike and fly competitions ( in solo and tandem) but it is never enough freedom for him. He constantly strives to make big triangles in the French Alps.
