INTERESTING FACT OR EXPERIENCE THAT HELPED SHAPE LIFE: “In 1989, I broke my back in a car wreck along with other significant injuries. I began a search for something I could do competitively. I could not race dirt bikes with my injuries as I historically did. I found armwrestling. Once I beat amateurs I realized I needed to get serious or stay home as I didn’t like losing much at all.”
