How long have you been playing disc golf?

I started playing again seriously for about 2 years now. I first picked up a disc about 10 years ago to toss around with friends. 

What are five discs you ALWAYS have in your bag?

TSA Animus, TSA Pathfinder, Discmania FD2, Elevation Koi, and Elevation Interceptor

What is your favorite disc golf course you've ever played?

Beaver Ranch Disc Golf Course is by far my favorite. There is a ton of elevation change as you hike the course near the beginning of the Rockys. It is so beautiful and very well maintained. 

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

I have been a Turntablist since I was 13 years old. Scratching on Vinyl is very therapeutic for me. 

Who is your favorite disc golfer and why?

My favorite disc golfer is Eric Oakley. He has an amazing personality and I just love the vibe he gives off. I remember playing on the AM side of a tournament he was also playing MPO at. I passed by him on my way to my next hole and he took the time to ask how it was going and wish me luck. He was my favorite before that but it solidified my thoughts of how amazing that man is.  

Where do you see yourself as a disc golfer in 5 years?

In 5 years, I see myself playing at the MPO level and hosting clinics for families local to my area.

Anything else you want the world to know about you?

I started taking Disc Golf seriously about 2 years ago. I didn't want to just play though. I wanted to help this sport and the community around it. I am a co-founder of Grow iT Disc Golf. This is a program that gives back to the disc golf community any way we can. We have raised thousands of dollars so far and have donated to Uplay DG, funded after school programs, sponsored AM players, and so much more. I also Co-run a Facebook disc golf page call Discmania BIN Only with about 7K members. Without the support of them, Grow iT would not of been able to achieve what we have. This just goes to show that the disc golf community is hands down the best community out there. I also own my own online disc golf store called Moonlight Disc Golf and during all of 2022, 25% of all my profits will be donated to Uplay Disc Golf.
