I started playing paintball when I was 14 because a friend showed me his issue of Paintball2Xtreme magazine. I soon went out and played with a group of friends, and had the time of my life. We started a team together, and I had a desire to play at the professional level one day. As my friends slowly feel away from the game, I pushed on, doing whatever I could to afford the chance to practice and play. As for joining "RL," I was approached by Kirill before the 2013 season, and informed that they were interested in having me. A couple of days later, I also received word that an opportunity to move overseas and run a field/store in Belgium was open to me. I wouldn't have been able to meet the demanding training routine of RL without this move, so I was very fortunate everything worked out. I am also very thankful to everyone that made this possible. Alex Martinez from X-factor for doing everything he has for me since day one, which allowed me to compete and enjoy the game I love. For Axel Knauf and Geoffrey Bouillon, without them none of this would be possible. Last, but certainly not least- I want to thank the RL organization for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime to compete with such a professionally run club. I admire the players and staff alike, and hope that together we can add another star on the RL logo this year, and more in the years that follow.
