Just before heading off to college at Humboldt State University, I decided to try a 30ft step up jump on my mountain bike in San Diego. I have been working on a jump line near my house and someone came along and built the last jump much bigger. I went for it, Over shooting it and going over the handlebars sustaining a C3 complete SCI.

In the early stages of recovery I believe nothing is more important than therapy work. As of now I am not able to start with adaptive sports so physical therapy is what is keeping me active throughout these early months. It also boosts my confidence and mental state as I strive to be the best I can.
