How long have you been playing disc golf? 15 years
How did you get your start in disc golf? A friend of mine told me to come try it out, the rest is history.
What do you love most about the sport? Watching the disc fly exactly as you envisioned it before you threw it, there's nothing else like it.
What makes disc golf better than the other sports you have played? The community for sure. I've met so many people that have gone on to be great life long friends of mine.
How do you approach a new course? Usually by not trying to bite too much off on the first go around. It's also a really great idea to be looking backward as you go, there are so many lines you can't see unless you know where they finish.
What motivates you to continually improve your game? Trying to be better than you were yesterday and the feeling when you accomplish it.
What do you do to stay focused playing in tourneys? For tournaments I'll usually have a Rubik's Cube in my bag and if I'm sitting still for too long at a pad I'll solve it quickly, it gives me something to stay concentrated on.
What’s your most memorable win? I don't have too many as I'm usually running the tournament too so it makes it difficult, but I would say my first win in MP40.
What’s your most memorable disc golf moment? The most impactful moment for me was meeting Eric McCabe for the first time. That was over 10 years ago now and he has definitely been a driving force in my time with the sport.
What are your top three favorite discs? Latitude 64 Explorer. Dynamic Discs Emac Truth and Felon.
What are your top three courses you have played? Raptor's Knoll , Langley BC. Rose Hill , Kamloops BC. Copper Ridge , Logan Lake BC.
If you could play any course in the world, which would it be? Maple Hill.
Who is your disc golf hero, and how were you influenced be him or her? Jeremy Rusco because he built Dynamic Discs from an eBay page he ran out of his dorm room to a company signing players for a million dollars a year. It shows you can do anything if you put your mind to it and have passion for it.
Whats in the bag? My bag is mostly built around; Dynamic Discs Warden, Emac Truth, Felon and Enforcer. Latitude 64 River, Explorer and Grace. Westside Discs Anvil and Stag.
What non-disc golf hobbies do you have? I play video games a bit when I'm in the mood and go through phases of trying to improve my time solving the 3x3 Rubik's Cube. I also have a Border Collie that takes up a lot of my time and attention.
Any superstitions you have before or during a round? None at all no.
What does #NoBadRounds mean to you? You have to remember no matter how bad a round or even an entire season can be that at the end of the day we're just out walking with a purpose. Enjoy the scenery and the time with friends and the rest will follow.
What do you love most about your FlighTowel? My FlighTowel is essential to warm my arm up before playing. I have been dealing with an elbow injury on and off for a few year and I don't know what I would do without my FlighTowel.
