  • Player Bio

    I am passionate about jamming, i think freestyle is the coolest artform/sport out there. the beauty of dance, creativity and the mastering of the human body in cooperation with both an object that flies and another person is exhilarating. I take only clock spin, but am ready to expand that. can do counter rim work. like to play fast and flow. good execution & flow after 25 years practice. lacking advanced moves but Charles is giving me some tips, and i am looking forward to advancing further this year. my clock throw is better than my counter, and i do better with a little distance.
