I've been in at least 4 local newspapers, on the news at least once, and in 1 magazine. I've introduced the sport of powerbocking to hundreds of individuals. I've personally trained and frequently practiced the sport with many of them. I've dedicated countless hours into building a thriving jumping stilt community wherever I've lived - and I've just gotten started."
