Background

I have been throwing frisbees-'Discs'-for about 20 years now. I got a dog to play with in 1995, and never looked back. My dog Laika and I were the first team from Colorado to qualify for the World Championships, in 2000. That year, we also won the National Long Distance Championship, another first for Colorado. Laika and I were all over TV and newspapers for years.
In 2000, I founded an organization called the UFO. The runs frisbee dog competitions, including the World Cup series. It is now going into its 12th year, and people compete in the World Cup around the world!
In 2004, I found a new dog to play with-Banzai. Banzai is one of the most dynamic, crazy, exciting frisbee dogs in the sport. She turns heads and drops jaws everywhere. She can play on grass, and is just as happy playing in snow. She can even turn some great moves in a snowboard half-pipe!!
Banzai has qualified for the World championships 6 times since 2004, and finished 3rd overall in 2007. She twice won the Colorado State Freestyle championship. She has traveled world wide to do shows and compete.
Banzai is a threat to win anywhere she shows up, and tons of fun to watch!
Though my dogs are my focus, I also spend a lot of time judging, running events, planning, and announcing. In late 2011, I was inducted into the Ashley Whippet Hall of Fame by the founder of the sport, Alex Stein. It was a terrific honor.
