Hello and thank you for taking the time to stop by and get to know more about Envision Paragliding.

We also offer one of the widest range of equipment dealerships available anywhere, so that you have the ability to find the right equipment that fits YOU and your needs.  With honest, unbiased reviews and product guidance, you can be sure to find the right gear to maximize your flying potential and safety.

I thank you for your support and I look forward to sharing the sky with you!

About Me...

Getting to know your instructor, guide and flying friend...

My name is Jeff and I am so glad to make your acquaintance!  To tell you a bit about myself, I have always been an adventurer at heart and always looked skyward dreaming of flight.  After many years of struggling with the limitations of traditional flying paths, I had given up on ever becoming a pilot.  However, in 2014, I was blessed with the singular experience that would change my life... My first tandem paragliding flight!  Wow!  What an experience!  The reality of being able to carry a glider on your back, hike up a mountain and take off on a flying adventure was an amazing, life-changing experience for me that I hope to share.  Now, after nearly 10 years of flying and adventuring,  I am following my natural path as a 25+ year educator and outdoor adventure guide to help create the same excitement for anyone interested in experiencing the joy of flight.  

Outside of my aerial endeavors, I enjoy spending time in nature... Hiking, mountaineering, rock climbing, snow sports, mountain/road cycling and more, along with a wide range of hobbies including playing guitar, art, travel, astronomy, RC modeling and a wide range of sports.
