How long have you been playing disc golf?

On and off until recently but I first played in '93. 

How did you get your start in disc golf?

There used to be a course on a college campus in Ft. Collins, CO and I'd play about 3-4 times a week. 

What do you love most about the sport?

 I love that it's an individual sport (me vs the course) yet I can also play with friends. I love that I can be outside in any weather and get some exercise and enjoy nature. 

What makes disc golf better than the other sports you have played?

 I feel my mind set from disc golf has also helped me in daily life. Sometimes bad things happen but the more I can stay positive and keep moving forward the better I feel. 

How do you approach a new course?

 I try to find what I feel the go to route is and then think about what disc I'll throw. Then I try to find a route that may be unconventional and what disc would match that. If I can, I throw and play off the first route and then throw the second route. Afterwards I evaluate what would have the highest reward vs risk if I was playing in a tournament. 

What motivates you to continually improve your game?

Playing a round with a high score motivates me. When I find areas where I can improve then I'm motivated to do so. 

What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys?

Deep breaths and staying hydrated mostly. I rarely where headphones but sometimes I listen to a bit of music in between holes if I feel I need a reset. 

What’s your most memorable win?

 I've not yet won a tournament so I'd say being invited to Team FlighTowel would be my "win". 

What’s your most memorable disc golf moment?

 It has to be the funny moment playing a course in North Bonneville, WA on a very windy day. There was a strong headwind and my tee shot (RHBH) went forward about 30 feet before getting turned over and landing about 100 feet to my right and BEHIND the tee pad. 

What are your top three favorite discs?

 Discraft Nuke SS, 150 Flick, and a Soft Magnet. The last 2 for sentimental reasons as I my son colored on them when he was maybe 3-4 with a Sharpie and the markings are still on them. ❤️

What are your top three courses you have played?

Whistler's Bend in Oregon, High Bridge in WI, Buxton Woods in Oregon.

If you could play any course in the world, which would it be?

I'm not sure but it would be in Finland, Sweden, or New Zealand!!

Who is your disc golf hero, and how were you influenced be him or her?

I don't know if I have a hero but if I could join a random card of Pros it would probably feature Sarah Hokum, Kevin Jones, Michelle Frazer, and Luke Humphries. This is just from tournament coverage and they all seem pretty chill.

Whats in the bag?

 A majority of what I throw is by Discraft mostly because years ago my buddies and I would split misprint boxes and I found a lot of what I love from there. Lots of variants of the Buzzz. 

What non-disc golf hobbies do you have?

I dj and make beats! ate21.bandcamp.com I also roast my own coffee beans and hope to one day start my own coffee roasting business.

Any superstitions you have before or during a round?

 No.

What does #NoBadRounds mean to you?

 It means even if my score is horrible I walk away from the course having had a lot of fun and enjoying myself and the company of whomever I played with. 

What do you love most about your FlighTowel?

The fob. I picked it out based on what I throw, it fits in my pocket nicely or can be looped under my belt when wearing rain pants, and my name and number are on it in case I ever drop it. I can also practice just about anywhere with it as long as I have a tee pads worth of floor space (it rains a lot here in Oregon and during my work week I can practice in my living room!). 

Is there anything else you would like to add to your Team FlighTowel profile?

 I'm a proud Father and I love my son very much!
