"Competing makes me feel that I can do more even with a brain injury." (apps.mesaaz.gov, 27 Apr 2011)
He experienced a traumatic brain injury and hearing loss while serving in the Navy in 2007. "My brain feels like it's scrambled. These days it's really hard for me to focus on any one task. I can't remember anything anymore unless it's written down. For a while, I really lost hope and didn't know if I could be happy again. But then I found the Wounded Warriors and Arizona Disabled Sports and done things like skiing and competing again. It has really lifted my spirits." (apps.mesaaz.gov, 27 Apr 2011)
