My History

How would you describe yourself as a flagger?

Very much a beginner. OW! Those weights can really hurt ya!

What is it about flagging that you enjoy the most?

Does "hearing color" make sense? I think so. Its a culmination of so many stimuli in one package.

How long have you been flagging? How did you get started?

TFW5 would be the start. It all started with offering to help Phillip with some of the weekend events, and then I kinda got sucked into it all.

Who has inspired or taught you?

Teachers come from all around me. Inspiration comes from Phillip because he is such a good friend. I also gleaned a lot of inspiration from Britt, Daniel Van Olst, and Aaron Akin in many different ways. This list could go on and on. I could watch Patric and Joe for days!
