Hello world!

Footbag has been a big part of my life since at least 1994. I’ve attended many tournaments, but have only listed ones below where I’ve been involved in either competition, judging, or volunteering in some way. I’ve consulted on many other footbag projects than those listed. I’ve published hundreds of videos garnering tens of thousands of views, and acted as an ambassador to and promoter of footbag sports to countless individuals over the course of my career.
