Although there is nothing like winning a world championship, the highlight of my career was at Ventura the next year when I hit a gitosis right in front of many of my idols who were judging, including Chipper Bro Bell and Dave ChillMan Schiller. I still get fired up whenever I get to jam, because it is the pure feeling of jamming in the wind that makes me say: There's nothing like jammin'--Live to jam and jam to live.
Now I love to try and inspire younger jammers to improve. It is exciting to watch someone who gets better evertime they play.
I also feel privileged to part of a sport that is new and creative and is growing all over the world.
