I started yo-yoing over the summer of sixth to seventh grade. I was made fun of all of seventh and eighth grade for my new hobby. I refused to give in to the peer pressure, I wanted to prove everyone wrong about yo-yoing. My cousin Nehemiah got me into yo-yoing when we started hanging out a lot and doing everything together. Over time I went from practicing a few days a week to practicing for hours every day. I started having a ton of fun while meeting new people and also traveling the entire nation to compete in contests.

I’m asked every day “How long have you been yo-yoing?” and I say about 10 years because when I was 14 I really began to pursue yo-yoing, but I think I was about 10 years old when I got my first yoyo. It was a Duncan Imperial that I bought in Levenworth, WA. I played with it until the string broke or I lost it. I did the same thing a couple years later when the yoyoguy came to my school. I just didn’t know how to pursue yoyoing so I moved on from it until I was about 13 or 14. At my high school in San Diego I saw a guy doing yoyos tricks similar to the way I do them today. I was astonished a yoyo could spin for so long not even knowing what a ball bearing was so I asked him about it and he directed me to a few online yoyo stores. I ordered a Duncan Bumble Bee and really began to pursue it.

The earliest thing I remember about yo-yoing was a Duncan Flying Squirrel in 5th grade. I loved that yoyo. I learned a lot of the fundamentals up to about Triple or Nothing or maybe Buddha’s Revenge. But all good things have to come to an end as I found out when a meanie-head took my yoyo and broke it. After that I had to get a new one so I remember ordering a Yomega Ooch-yo. A couple weeks passed and I kinda dropped yo-yoing cause I wasn’t getting any better and had the attention span of an 11 year old… granted I was one, but still.

I first started throwing a yoyo when I was in the 4th grade. A man came to our school and gave some message while throwing his yoyo around in circles. I don’t remember anything about the message but I do remember being amazed at what that guys yoyo could do. It was then I bought my first red Yomega Fireball yoyo. I threw that thing for hours until my finger would turn purple.
After taking a break from my yoyo for many years I would pick it back up again whenever my friend Free would come to town. He always had a pocket full of yoyo’s and it got me fired up to throw again until he left town. After he decided to move to Washington, it was clear that I now had to become a yoyo expert. Just fooling around twice a year wasn’t going to cut it so I picked up another couple yoyo’s and started throwing regularly.

I picked up my first yoyo when I was 10 in Florence, CO at the Gooseberry Patch. It was a Playmaxx ProYo. After learning some of the basics I set it down until I happened to see the Rocky Mountain YoYo club meeting outside The Wizards Chest in Denver, CO. I saw one of the guys do barrel rolls and I was hooked. I went home and ordered the Super Spinfactor from YYJ and started practicing. I took 2nd at the regional contest that year and 3rd a few years later the next time I competed. I’ve carried a yoyo in my pocket almost everyday now for the last 13 years.
