I'm from Independence, Missouri which is a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri. However that will be changing as I am making a move from the midwest to Orlando, Florida. Why? Well, for more opportunities as a photographer and to be able to ski year round.
So where did my interest come from for water skiing? Well, my Dad really got into skiing when he was in high school and discovered tournament skiing shortly after. Being a young kid, I remember seeing the spray come off my Dad and our good ski buddy Bill Esry's ski. The spray just captured my attention. Seeing the water come shooting off the ski as those guys dropped big heel side hammers was just inspiring and something that I had to experience.
While my ability level has gone up since the first time I rode in the boat and watched those guys rip, the inspiration that I get from watching anyone ski, only seems to grow.
Hopefully my entries in this blog inspire you to go and give life on the water a try!
