2012 was a big year for me. It was a time to reflect on my life, get it straightened out, and start heading to where I want to be - physically and mentally. I've traveled around the world – China, Germany, west coast, east coast, and everywhere in between. I've started my own company, Whispering Pines Tea Company. I've lost love and found love, had epiphany's, injuries, lost myself, and found myself. I've trained hard. I've promoted hard. I've pushed the boundaries of the sport and inspired others to do the same. Why? Sometimes I wonder why I train. I wonder why I walk on a 1 inch piece of webbing. Sometimes I wonder, but only during the rare occasion that I'm off the line. Slackline is life, slackline is passion, and slackline is here, now, and will always shape the way I live my life. Inspired by the line to live the slacklife.
