    Although there is nothing like winning a world championship, the highlight of my career was at Ventura the next year when I hit a gitosis right in front of many of my idols who were judging, including Chipper Bro Bell and Dave ChillMan Schiller. I still get fired up whenever I get to jam, because it is the pure feeling of jamming in the wind that makes me say: There’s nothing like jammin’–Live to jam and jam to live.
    Now I love to try and inspire younger jammers to improve. It is exciting to watch someone who gets better evertime they play.
    I also feel privileged to part of a sport that is new and creative and is growing all over the world.
    Top finishes: 1993 World Pairs Champion. Winning three state championships in two weeks in 1982. R.I. State Champ 1984. 1991 Worlds co-op 4th place. 1992 Worlds co-op 5th place. 1995 worlds co-op 3rd place. 1985 Worlds pairs 4th place. 1999 Manresa first place co-op. (This is my memory, actual results may differ).
