  • About the Project

    Navy SEAL Ryan “Birdman” Parrott is the Founder of the Bird’s Eye View Project, and the Host of the TV and Web Series and will introduce America to Veterans and First-Responders who are overcoming adversity, and living their lives to the fullest. Fans will gain a front-row seat to their challenges, and the people who work hard every day, pouring into their lives, where nothing is impossible…even the most EXTREME and EXCITING challenges.

  • The Reason Why

    Many charities positively and profoundly impact the lives of Veterans and First-Responders, but they need a bigger platform and more funding to share their story and highlight the needs of those they serve. Our project will showcase a series of BIG events that will raise BIG awareness and funding for charity.

Our Mission

The The Bird’s Eye View Project utilizes extreme sports to connect our subscribers to the extreme needs of Veterans and First-Responders. Through a documentary film, web series, social media and live events, we will support our Veterans and First-Responders by raising awareness and funds supporting the challenges they face every day. Our mission is to bridge the growing divide between those who serve and those who benefit from their service, by encouraging all Americans to

“Support Those Who Support Us.”


Please help spread the word and as we raise funds for our Veterans and First-Responders. Without you, a successful "Bird's Eye View Project" would be impossible.

Only a team can make a difference. Together, we can help Veterans and First-Responders overcome the challenges they face every day.
