First paintball experience: Like most, it was a friend’s birthday party. I truly had no desire to play paintball. I was more focused on skateboarding and didn’t really want to be shot at. Once I got out there, I loved every minute of it! I remember a grown man tried surrendering me and I turned around and shot that dummy. From then on I was hooked!

Proudest paintball moment:  Winning my first national tournament in 2009, which was also my first Division 1 tournament and first World Cup win! RIP, Raiden.
