Nova, co-founder of Soul Flow Arts, is North America’s #1 ranked acrobatic paragliding pilot who is also known for being the first American to pull off a trick called the Infinite Tumble. He is probably even more known for his film, Infinite Stumbling, that tells the story of his life-altering accident in 2009 when one of his routine maneuvers went dramatically wrong, smashing him into a mountain. Not only did he manage to learn how to walk again but he also was given the gift of embracing life, love, and gratitude on a profound level. This short film has been shown in multiple film festivals around the world and Nova has been featured in national magazines including Origin, Cross Country, and the television series, Xterra Adventures. Nova still flies and is an extraordinary, living example of what it takes to face fears, engage flow, and always aspire beyond the norm.
