I was first introduced to the sport of archery in 2004 when my father gave me a wooden buck eye recurve for Christmas. His idea was to introduce me to archery so we could hunt together and do something he did as a kid. When I shot my first arrow I instantly became hooked on the sport. In 2007 I began working with Coach Don Rabska in Van Nuys, California. Coach Rabska helped me realize my dreams and greatly assisted in formulating a plan to achieve my goals. In 2007 I went to my first Junior Dream Team camp and became fully introduced to the BEST method of Coach Lee. I now continue the BEST method training with Coach Bob Romero whom I met at Indoor Nationals in 2007. WIth the support and guidance from the Coach Lee and the high performance coaches as well as many great friends I know I will achieve my Olympic goal.
