When/how did you discover disc golf and knew you absolutely loved it?
In 2009 I walked down Fulton Street in San Francisco and found a shop selling those crazy small Frisbees. I bought a few and was absolutely hooked.
What’s your favourite RPM Disc in your bag right now and why?
The Kea. It´s super reliable and likes to rest in chains.
Do you have any practice routines? If so, what are they?
Limber up. Putt as long as I need to feel confident. About 4 mid and driver throws and I´m good.
What are your goals for the current season?
My season will begin in Thailand in late January. The idea is to play tournaments all across Europe and attend the European Championships in Hungary this summer.
Do you have a proudest disc golf moment?
Quite a few actually. Winning New Zealand and German titles each twice, the 2022 MP50 PDGA Euro Tour and the Baltic Championship title but also beating McBeth, Feldberg and Lizotte in tournaments. Thinking of single tournaments the Paradise Plates (NZ), Zieleniec Open (Poland) and Hyzenbrownie (Thailand) tourneys were pretty sweet, too.

The sudden death play-off battle between Paul and Ricky and Ken and Barry´s final 5 holes at 2014 World Championships.
