  • Career Highlights

    I was never one of the top competitors, but I love playing. Every once in a while I break seed.

  • How I Started

    I recall doing “boomerangs” with a Wham-O All-American when I was 10 or 11.

Player Details

  • Favorite Moves

    When I was 34 I came up with a sequence I call the “Old Man Move.” It includes a leap over, a behind the back set to a pretzel pull, and a spin into a gitis catch. Doing it is proof of my continuing youth.

  • Mentors

    Evan Furtado, when he was playing in Santa Cruz. Joey Hudoklin was a big inspiration. Skippy, JK, Joey, Tom Shepard, Glen Alona and Connie Bond were very helpful and encouraging when I was writing my book.

  • Partners

    My first partner was Gene Lytle. For the others, see below:

  • Media & Appearances

    If you dig up some old MArk Williams videos from Santa Cruz in the 80s, it might be me doing the voice over.

  • Other Fun

    I like riding my bike to the beach and going for a swim. And I’m always up for a deep political/philosophical discussion (except not for too long with Jamco… he makes my brain hurt).
