I grew up in Syossett, Long Island. I have brown eyes and I don’t know what my natural hair color is anymore. When I was in the 5th grade, I got a huge crush on Walter Cronkite. I really did have that Holly Hobby notebook I was telling you about. I love Bruce Springsteen, Almond Roca and Abbott and Costello movies. I don’t like licorice or my ankles. When I’m not disc golfing, I enjoy hiking, camping, kayaking, travel, and photography, all hobbies in which I swear less than disc golf and that I can actually get better at with age. I broke one bone during eight years of military service, and two during the 2015 National Collegiate Disc Golf Championship. I can be bribed with craft beer or a well-made Old Fashioned.

Strongest part of your game? What needs work?
Approach shots are the strongest part of my game and my distance driving needs the most work.
Best tip for a new player?
Put away all those overstable drivers and start by learning to be consistent throwing putters, mids, then fairway drivers with accuracy. Arm speed and the resulting need for faster and more stable drivers will come with experience.
