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

“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” ― Bruce Lee



Featured jumper of the week: ERIN MCMORROWLike Jump for Joy! Featuring Erin McMorrow on Facebook

From: Born in Tallahassee, FL. L

ived in Toronto for several years, and grew up the rest of the time in Virginia, near DC.


Lives: Venice, California.
 Urban Planning and Sustainable Cities - my blog:

Q: What inspires you to jump for joy?
A: Everything! Life is good and I feel profoundly blessed and grateful. I'm jumping into a new phase of my life and am super excited about it!

Q. Your experience doing jumping photos?
A: It was a beautiful experience, and is still affecting me. There's something really special about the action and adventure of it. There's also nothing like being at the beach in Venice on a beautiful day.

Q: What inspires you in life?
A: People living out their passions and being unafraid.

Q: Your greatest passion?
A: I'm passionate about living well - being really present and making the very most of my time each day. Professionally, I am passionate about cities, and about connecting food, soil, and nature back to people and their quality of life.

Q: Your driving force?
A: Love. I think ultimately we are here to love and to create.  

Q: Your philosophy?
A: Lean in. Walk to the edge and breathe through it. Also, again, to be present, generous, and loving.

Q: Anything in the world?
A: I want to change two systems for the better: the food system and the way we make things (manufacturing of goods). At the same time, I'm learning how to bring consciousness and heart into the human-level process of large scale change. I've been working toward it for a long time, and am doing my best to live it every day.

Q: What are you working on?
A: I'm working on a lot of things right now, but one of my main projects is called Kiss the Ground. It's about creating a new front yard victory garden movement that puts the food system back in the hands of people, and heals the soil. Healing the soil has everything to do with human health, and also with planet health through carbon sequestration. We are still building our website, but I have some links on my blog:

Q: Mini bio, interesting facts about you or something special you want to share.
A: I grew up on the east coast, but am now am completely in love with Venice, CA. I've spent a lot of my time traveling, and still feel like a budget traveler most days. I just completed my PhD in Urban Planning and Sustainable Cities (you can call me DocMorrow;), so I'm working on pursuing my dream of creating systemic change in cities around the world for the better. I'm also hoping to deepen my yoga practice, to learn more about energetic healing, to practice the drums, and to get in the ocean most every day!
