How long have you been playing disc golf? 12 years
How did you get your start in disc golf? I remember I was introduced to the game of disc golf from a friend of mine back when I was in my early teens. I only played briefly, but I still remember buying my first disc, an Innova Cobra. What brought me back to the game was 12 years ago when I was geocaching with some friends and stumbled to a local disc golf course. Picked up some discs at the local disc golf store and I was hooked ever since.
What do you love most about the sport? I’m a competitive guy. I’ve played games (Chess and Magic the Gathering) professionally, but something about this game of disc golf that makes me strive to be a better player and person. Disc golf pushes me to continue to improve on all facets of my game. To be the best player that I can be. This allows me to share my passion with others. I love bringing my family and friends and introduce them to the sport.
What makes disc golf better than the other sports you have played? All other sports I’ve played, I was always playing against an opponent. In disc golf, you are playing against yourself. Only you can be your worst enemy or continue to push through self-challenges and rise to the occasion. I strive to always do better each time I’m out on the field or on the course.
How do you approach a new course? I play the new course with no expectations and make sure that I’m having fun. If it’s a course that I plan to play in an event, I try to take notes and make an assessment by different disc selections and different lines of play.
What motivates you to continually improve your game? The desire to be the best player that I can be. I constantly challenge myself to do better by working different areas of my game from putting, upshots or driving. Most importantly, I continue to work on my focus, discipline, and mental game.
What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys? I try to have a short-term memory and focus on each shot that I make while not reflecting on my previous play.
What’s your most memorable win? My most memorable win was the Winter at the Bud back in February of 2020. I had excellent first round. But struggling during the second round I was able to persevere at the end, I was able to earn the win with a long 25ft putt.
What’s your most memorable disc golf moment? My first ace at Fort Steilacoom - Lakewood, WA. Was with my family at the time and was great to share my excitement with them.
What are your top three favorite discs? Innova Star Madison Walker Wraith, Innova Star Christine Jennings Sidewinder, and Innova XT Stud

If you could play any course in the world, which would it be? Winthrop Gold DGC, Rock Hill, SC home of the United States Disc Golf Championship
Who is your disc golf hero, and how were you influenced be him or her? James Conrad. He showed me how much fun it is to drive backhand with putters. The flight of driving a putter where it can so straight or have that beautiful slow turn is a sight to behold.

Any superstitions you have before or during a round? No superstitions, just routines on how I prepare and play during a tournament.
What does #NoBadRounds mean to you? Every time I go out to the field or play a course, I’m always focused on the positive of what I take away from the round. This allows me to push myself to work harder and to continue work on being a better player.
What do you love most about your FlighTowel? They help me get loosened up and keep my discs clean and dry during each round that I play. Since I play all the time, the durability of the each of their products is what I notice the most. One of the best investments I’ve every made.
