Since discovering the sport in 2003, John has displayed an unwavering passion for Frisbee Freestyle. Along with best friend & team mate Joe McCrave, John has created a PodCast about the sport called ‘DiscCast’; a downloadable radio-show that features regular news updates about the sport and interviews with many of the sports stars from the past and present. DiscCast has given John the ideal opportunity to uncover the story of Freestyle’s past and, of course, to promote the sport; something John is always eager to do. Whether it be performing at local events, or entering stage talent shows, John loves introducing Frisbee Freestyle to a new audience and presenting in an fresh, entertaining way. More recently, this has even involved mixing Freestyle together with some of his other passions; writng & acting. With an emphasis on comedy, Freestyle has become intertwined in various stage sketches which have all gone down a treat with audiences. John hopes his passion for Frisbee Freestyle will continue to develop and grow in the future and will always be grateful to ‘that Nike commercial’ for introducing him to one of the most exciting adventures of his life.

How I Started
Back in 2003, I saw the Nike Frisbee Freestyle Advert on TV. I knew this was the sport for me! I went online to find out more before ordering an Instructional DVD entitled ‘The Secrets to Pro Disc Freestyle’!
Nothing beats body rolling into a strong wind on the beach for me…
