The youngest of eight kids growing up in Northern California on a cul-de-sac, there were plenty of siblings and safe spaces to toss around the Frisbee. In 1978 as a spectator at the World Disc Games in Santa Cruz, his interest was sparked and in 1981 he began playing and organizing others in his high school. Tommy found the freedom of Freestyle to be right up his alley. Larry Imperiale was Tommy’s first mentor, and although it was painful, he and Skippy Jammer won the 1986 World Disc Games, the first of 21 titles.

Welcome to Eduardo, one of the hottest players on the scene! The young Edo started playing with his Dad and a Daffy Duck Disc. At 17, he saw Andrea Festi playing at a music festival and his Freestyle journey began in Rovereto along with Mattia Colombaria, & Fillipo Bortot. All sorts of amazing connections came as a result. The four horsemen of Rovereto began playing inside during the winter, and their game hit another level. It was at the 2017 Worlds in Udine, Italy where they all earned a place in the finals, that Eduardo was truly inspired to deepen his game. And deepen it he did!
