I grew up surfing in Ocean City, Maryland starting at the age of 4. I spent most of my time in the water with my father who taught me his love of our ocean. I also have a passion for salt water fishing, thanks to Dad.
Later, in 1989, I moved to South Florida and spent all my spare time surfing hurricane swells and just about any waves I could find. After 14 years in Florida I moved to Calabash where I met Dan Johnston and began building surfboards for Blinddogsurfboards.
I have been an Eastern Surf Association ( www.ESA-SNC.com ) in 2009, earned the rank of "Master Long Board" and finished 2 years at in a row at 2nd of my bracket group.
