Quote of the day: "Perfection is reached, not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away." -- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I've always been a sports fan, ever since I can remember watching ABC's Wide World of Sports on Saturday afternoons as a kid. Unfortunately, I was not a natural athlete although I did compete in soccer and track in high school. I also ran, rode bike, tried to play basketball and tennis, and threw a low of frisbees. Unfortunately, in the early 80's I had a knee injury which slowed me down. On top of that I didn't take care of it so I kept reinjuring it until I finally needed surjery--twice--to remove cartilage. Somewhere along the line I also tore me ACL which definitely changed my sports selection: no more jumping sports. Even running was touch-and-go, so I started looking for non-impact sports. Luckily I rediscovered roller skating with a new twist: Rollerblades. At that time (~1996) Rollerblades were new and only used by hockey players for off-season training. I got a pair and, as they say, the rest is history. I've been inline skating ever since. Coming to Dartmouth has increased by repertoire, adding rock climbing and ice hockey.

I also like to photograph sports. To see my sports photography pages go here.
