At the age of 14 he learnt to rock climb, thanks to his Dad.
Between the ages of 16 – 19 years, Sam started to compete in rock climbing in the UK, as well as big wall climbing in France.
He joined a white water rafting team in Africa, travelled to Nepal to participate in kayaking, as well as Bulgaria for snowboarding, and Mombasa for sea kayaking.
After attending a motivational talk by Tim Emmett about skydiving and BASE jumping, Sam’s eyes were opened to a world of new possibilities.
Realising that he could fulfil his passion for the outdoors whilst simultaneously pushing himself further than ever before, Sam decided that this was what he wanted to do with his life and he started to follow his dream!
At 21 Sam went to Portugal to start a BASE jumping course which dramatically changed his outlook on life and has given him a love for this incredible sport.
For the past four years Sam has been travelling between Europe, Mexico and the USA, pursuing his love for BASE jumping, wingsuiting and skydiving.
Today he is flying technical wingsuit terrain, flying video for wingsuit, BASE jumping, and teaching others how to skydive.
