Originally from San Juan, Francisco did his first tandem at age 15 – and he’s never looked back. He immediately began to work in the industry, first packing parachutes and then editing tandem videos. By the time he was 18, Francisco was DZ office manager and well-known for providing stellar customer service.
Francisco earned his A License in his early 20s, and his feet have scarcely touched the ground since. He moved to the US and started traveling, working at DZs in California, New York, Florida, Chicago and Texas, as well as visiting and competing at dropzones across the US, South America and Europe.
Before returning home to be closer to family and the sweet Boricua culture, Francisco spent five years at Skydive Spaceland Houston jumping tandems, teaching AFF and having a whole lot of fun. He was also a tunnel instructor at iFly Houston.
