The arc of my dart origin story was fortuitous and then quite focused. I started later in life at the age of 27, but was driven to get better right away. I quickly recognized the true beauty of this game: That ANYONE could improve if they were willing to put in the proper work and were willing to make the appropriate sacrifices.
I was messing around on the dartboard one night with some co-workers at an NYC pub when the bartender challenged me to a game. By the end of the night he told me to show up on Tuesday for a league match because I was on the team. A new world of fun and friends was opening up.
I made my way to the top division in a few seasons and in short order decided I needed to captain a team to create my own path and opportunity. That first season of captaining we won the championship. And with that I became an incredibly focused student of the game and community.
I moved to Providence, Rhode Island and less than a year later I played the Seacoast Open; my first ADO tourney and won the Cricket Doubles – the first event I ever played. I also got involved with the local leagues and commnunity. I found it necessary to help a top division team win a champioship there.
I brought back long format set play (formerly known as PDSL) to NYC and created a multi-tiered, multi-division system with Anthony Eugenia (of the CDC), the pinnacle of which was the NYC Premier League.
I moved to Los Angeles for a couple of years and stoked the coals of the SCDA at a time when interest had waned. I found it necessary to help a top division team win a championship there too.
I am a 2-Time winner of the NYC Premier League, (4-time Finalist)
I have won events in the DPNY and DPLA including the DPLA Final in its inagural season.
I was a multi-time invitee to the CDC in its first few seasons (although sadly I had to decline the prestigous honor with a young one at home under my care).
I started teaching the game, the posture, the resilence in 2012 when I realized there was a need for distilling knowledge and making it truly accessible for players of all levels, from beginners to CDC level players looking to stay tight and get an edge.
I work with indviduals, teams, and groups (when in-person). I have recently started working with players around the globe virtually in light of the pandemic.
I have 3 main goals in my passion for teaching this game:
Help you achieve your specific goals.
Make your need for me obsolete.
Help someone become World Champion.
