Biography: Born April 22, 1979 in Florida. We moved to PA before I was 1. Rode my 1st roller coaster when I was about 3 or 4 (Kennywood's Jack Rabbit), and I've been lovin' coasters ever since!! Went to college at Penn State University and now work as an engineer. I try to visit theme parks as often as I can, but it's tough.

I usually make it to a couple "new" parks each year, and I visit my "home park" (Kennywood - one of the finest parks in all of America!) as often as possible. I enjoy most all rides, but in particular am a coaster-holic!! In Jan. 2004, I finally joined ACE, and I am excited to make it to more parks and use their events to meet many fellow coaster enthusiasts!

Steel, Wooden, it doesn't matter to me.....I am particularly fond of Inverted coasters and hyper/giga/strata coasters. And of course, nothing beats a great wooden coaster, although I haven't been on that many yet. There's just nothing quite like the feeling you get while riding a roller coaster! Keep 'em coming, designers, the sky's the limit!! You guys keep makin' them, I'll keep on riding them!
