Other Info/Notes:
I grew up in southeast Kansas and then attended Kansas State University 2001-2006. I played Ultimate Frisbee there for four years. I was always the slowest guy on the team, but I had a monster forearm throw and a knack for leading people downfield.

After graduation I moved to Chicago to start my first job and then got married. So I lost track of disc sports.

My career moved me to West Michigan in the winter of '07. The winters there are miserable so by March of '08 I was looking for something to do outside. One of my buddies and I found nine Innova drivers on Craigslist for $25 one day. We spent the next couple of weeks watching disc golf videos on Youtube and cutting our teeth at Lamar Park in Grand Rapids after work. We slowly explored the rest of the courses in the area over the next couple of months.

I grew tired of playing the same courses each week, so I slowly started to branch out and explore other courses in the state. The highlight of '08 for me was a 10 day roadtrip through the Midwest during the first week of September that saw me play 20 courses in 10 states. That's one of the things I enjoy most about disc golf, actually. You get to see plenty of beautiful off-the-interstate areas that would normally be overlooked.
