I was first sponsored in 1997. I started instructing wakeboarding professionally in 1999. I am currently sponsored by O'Brien WakeBoards, "The WaterSports Farm", and Lightning Tower Accessories. 4 live television appearances for wakeboarding and watersports. Long history of various high profile sponsors including a no-cost boat sponsorship. I have competed in and attended countless professional and amatuer events all over the nation. Built several wakeboard slider obstacles. Mentored many wakeboarders into sponsorships. Future goals: coach wakeboarding, ride progressively, and work within the industry.
