How did you get into the sport?

I first saw it on the X-games in the late 90's and knew I had to try it. I built my first luge out of wood and old skateboard parts. Over time I upgraded it with better wheels, bearings and trucks. Eventually I had an aluminum racing luge custom built for my by Tim Cayer of the now defunct Subterfuge Land Luge. In 2011 and the first half of 2012 I raced a luge of my own design, built from aluminum and carbon fiber. I now race a Roger's Bros street luge and Bottle Rocket 2.0 classic luge.
