The Inner Game of Pickleball Story

I played my first game of pickleball on April 30, 2020, and I was instantly hooked. When I went browsing for cool pickleball shirts, I couldn’t find many, and quite honestly, those that I did find weren’t what I would consider cool. To me, cool is fun. And, in that spirit, I decided to launch my own brand of pickleball swag. 

In addition to being a designer, I am also a writer. My work has appeared in over 40 publications including the L.A. Times, Playboy Magazine, and ESPN Magazine. I’ve also been the sports editor at several men’s magazines. Currently I am writing for  Pickleball Magazine. You can read my work in Pickleball Mag by clicking “articles” on the top menu.

I invite you to follow along with my writing, and unique insight, on the Inner Game of Pickleball Facebook group, and also on YouTube where I offer free video tutorials on the sport of pickleball. My tutorials are based on my growth as a player, and imparting the things I learn to you.

Thanks so much for your interest in the Inner Game of Pickleball! Please feel free to drop me a line if you have anything to share.
