What is your most memorable experience in archery? Winning my first ASA Shooter of the Year, winning my first ASA Classic Championship and making my first shoot down at an ASA event in a Pro Class.
Best piece of advice for upcoming archers? (Other than “shoot a Hoyt” as I will add that anyway) Stay safe and shoot straight. Practice hard, listen harder and remember that you’re never too good to listen and take advice from other shooters.
Something unique/interesting about yourself: I actually shot right handed from the moment I was big enough to shoot a bow until the end of the tournament season in 2010. I then, under the direction of my good friend and coach GRIV, decided it was time to at least try and swap over to left handed considering I’m left handed and left eye dominate. About a year after that huge transition my scores and results started to reach new heights that I hadn’t reached before. I’m very happy to say the swap had positive effects after a very trying first year as a left-handed shooter.
