My name is Sharon and as long as I can remember I always wanted to be in the air. Even as a kid
whenever I found myself on a high edge I was wondering how it will feel to hop off and fly. At the
time I was wondering if those thoughts and feelings might be a bit abnormal, but then I discovered

I did my first jump at the age of 18 and it turned my world around. I found myself spending more and more time at the DZ, so eventually I started to work there.
Five years into the sport I co-founded the “BrainPOP” freefly team which won the Israeli nationals
and represented Israel in world competitions and events for 5 years. When it was time to end our
worldwide adventure as a team, I decided to move to the states to continue pursuing my passion.
I spent a year living in Raeford, NC, flying in the tunnel, and then moved to Deland, FL which has
been my home base ever since. I now travel the world, coaching, organizing and trying my best to
spread joy along the way.
