In June 2007 I suffered a career ending injury at the Baltimore Dew Tour where I crashed on a double backflip and broke my neck leaving me paralysed from the shoulders down. For the last 9 years my life has had more than it's fair share of complications, but I continue to 'stay strong' and firmly believe that one day in the future I will walk again and ride with my two boys.
