Growing up as a swiss, Krischa has been climbing in the alps since he could remember. Two and half decades in the mountains and the draw to pursue the rock warriorĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s way in the vertical world around the globe hasnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t diminished. He grew his wings in 2012 in Tahoe, California where cowboys still roam. After learning how to paraglide, his obsessiveness switched towards flying very quickly. Talent and Airtime would bring results, earning him a supporter role for Team USA4 in the RedBull XAlps 2015.
Once an established fashion and advertising photographer in Toronto, Jordan fell deeply in love with paragliding and chose to combine his passions into a medium for positive change. Read more
His aerial pursuits have landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records and resulted in multi-award winning films, such as Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“The Boy Who Flies,Ă˘â‚¬Âť the inspiring story of a young Malawian manĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s struggle to become his countryĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s first paraglider pilot.
Proceeds from his work have allowed Jordan to devote time to philanthropic endeavours such as the School of Dreams Project, connecting the beautiful people of Malawi with the quality paragliding equipment and instruction they need to realize their dreams of flight.
When Jordan isnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t off flying or filming in some remote corner of the earth, he calls Honey Bus, his 26-foot converted school bus, home. Together they weave through the Rocky Mountains in search of new places to live, shoot, edit, and fly.
