I was born and raised in Caldwell, Idaho by my parents, John & Peggy with two older brothers. I played every sport possible and eventually earned a scholarship to play volleyball at George Washington University. I learned some extremely valuable lessons as a collegiate athlete while earning double majors in Biology and Biological Anthropology, and was inducted into the GW Athletic Hall of Fame in 2016.
I didn’t discover disc golf until my early 20’s while I was teaching high school science and coaching volleyball in the St. Louis area. I met friends after work to play recreational rounds as often as possible and soon after joined a weekly doubles league at Quail Ridge Disc Golf Course. I immediately started competing in PDGA events, joined the professional ranks by the next summer, and toured each summer after that year until I resigned my teaching position and started touring full time.
Over the years I have accumulated 57 wins, including several National Tour and Major wins, with the 2012 World Champion Title being my most prestigious win.
There have been valleys and peaks in my play over the years, but a steady climb and perseverance have brought to me to a great place in my game and the coming years are full of promise! I am looking forward to a bright future in disc golf and hope to see you out on my home course sometime. When I’m not on the road with my busy touring schedule, I am training in Santa Cruz, CA playing one of California’s original gems, Delaveaga Disc Golf Course.
