Mentor(s): I remember watching Ewrin Velasquez play when he came to the sky of 10,000 frisbee tourny long ago. He inspired me more than any one.
Started playing: 1978/ 1980
How I started playing: I walked into a dusty feild house at the U of M and looked up to see Steve Hubard do a chest roll in 1978(?). After that I was hooked.
Favorite move: I love watching so much of this freestyle flying disc display... but if i had to say my favorite it would have to be the multi-spinning (three or more) reverse guitosis.
Other fun: skiing, down hill mountain biking, kayaking... i guess i love falling down hills if i'm not zippin a disc around.
Partners past & present: Pat Marron, Petri Isola, Dave Jewel, Steve Jennings, John Drube, Tommy Leitner, others
Someone once asked me if I played a musical instrument. I said, "I play the frisbee". To me, flying disc freestyle is an art form and the flying disc is a most wondrous paint brush. I have played with many kinds of toys, many kinds of round balls and projectiles of so many different kinds. But none hold the intrigue of the flying flat ball. It makes no difference if I am playing before an audience of thousands or if I am playing alone at the foot of my bed, it's always the same mysterious movement, the same joyous surprise. From the moment I first held a nail delay to the last move I did with a disc on this day, it always appears as the same joy.
