Jeff Shapiro began flying in 1993 and is now a popular Dad during his daughter's school career day. As a world class hang glider pilot, BASE jumper and wing suit flyer, KAVU athlete and family man, Shapiro, followed his own advice of doing whatever calls you - "whatever you're psyched on, whatever the thing is that inspires you when you wake up, go do that."
Shapiro mentioned an interview he heard with Sam Harris who said, “If you’re doing anything other than seeking happiness from the time you’re born to the time you die, your wasting your life.” Shapiro embraces this philosophy with his outdoor adventure life and family. Shapiro is an elite level rock climber and to keep in shape, runs ultra trail marathons.
Finally, Shapiro offers this advice on health, "We should be trying to fit our work related lives into our ability to stay healthy."
