Showcasing the beauty of the human spirit - in mid air - around the world

Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen Hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.” ― Mary Anne Radmacher

Featured jumper of the week: MELANIE HEYESLike Jump for Joy! Featuring Melanie Heyes on Facebook

From: Born and raised in beautiful Vancouver, B.C.
Lives: I currently in Whistler, B.C and have been there for 6 years.
Work: I work for
AWM Alliance Real Estate Group ltd.

Q: What inspires you to jump for joy?
A: My inner child! As a child, jumping, running and playing are some of the first simple things you learn that naturally make you smile. Sometime you need to go back to the simple things in life that naturally make you high. Literally in this case. These are feelings that everyone should remember no matter what age. Keep your inner child and express it!

Q. Your experience doing jumping photos?
A: It was such a beautiful day on the mountain, glorious really. The energy was high so right from the start we decided to do the group shots. We were nailing it! Everyone was on point and in the air at the same time! It was like we all tuned into each other like magic. That energy continued on to our solo shots. A feeling of being free to create art with your body, every jump being unique and different just like each of us are.

Q: What inspires you in life?
A: I have had a lot of inspiration from nature. Especially living in Whistler with 2 extremely different seasons. You really get to see what mother nature can do. The surroundings inspire me to be more creative and the unknown inspire me to be more adventurous.

Q: Your greatest passion?
A: Experience. I know that seems general but I’m very passionate about experiencing life and the diversity that life can offer you. Getting out there, taking risks, scaring myself. I love fashion – wearing an avant garde outfit. I’m passionate about being myself and being unique, standing out and inspiring others to do the same. We all have something to offer and sometime we need a little bit of encouragement to show it.

Q: Your driving force?
A: Live, laugh and learn. These are all things that are simple but can motivate you to experience your own path in life.

Q: Your philosophy?
A: Treat others as you would want to be treated. It can be applied to any aspect of your life. This is something my grandmother taught me at a very young age.

Q: Anything in the world?
A: Well, there are lots of things that I want to do. Extreme things like Skydiving and bungee jumping. I have never been a real adrenaline junkie although after experiencing the bobsled at the Olympic sliding center in Whistler I think I’m hooked. I’m scared but I know that I can overcome my fears.

Q: Mini bio, interesting facts about you or something special you want to share.
A: I love sports, travel, fashion and fitness. I love watching sports as much as playing them, especially hockey. I also indulge in fashion by making my own clothes and jewelry. If I am not on the field, or at the sewing machine you can find me at the gym working out, doing yoga or running. I relax by dining out with friends, dancing, socializing, or just watching movies, cooking dinner and enjoying a nice bottle of wine with good company.
