  • Player Bio

    Pioneer co-op mixed , making people feel good about what they saw – liked 3 players being one unit to create an experience with the music. Putting lots of work in putting routines together with the rads, others just jammed. Found music, worked on sections. Liked teaching, getting younger players in the sport.

    The chemistry between Bill Doug and rick that launched them was key – took the east and west to create our own style – flowing of Calif . with the intricate stuff of NY.

    “Casio” was a member of the famous Coloradicals Coop team. He was always very adept at all aspects of play and had a aptittute for technical skills. Although he was a world class player in his own ri ┬óght, he didn’t really come into his own until he moved to the freestyle mecca of San Diego County and started to work out with the locals at La Jolla Cove. At this point in time, his game improved dramatically. So much so that for a while he was the very best player on the planet. Organized the “Art of Disc” team with Dave Schiller and Joel Rogers and went on a successfull run of back to back FPA Coop titles (’89, 90). Also teamed with Stacy McCarthy (formerlly Anderson) to reset the standard of play for the mixed division. A techno weinie at heart, he was quick to embrace new moves and make them his own. Really one of the all time greats.

  • Career Highlights

    Beating the NYers and Californians and winning the Rose Bowl in 1980 with Bill and Doug – the Coloradicals. Winning FPA Worlds against the Velasquez Bros in 1979.
