I wasn't wearing a helmet when I went skateboarding on November 30, 2011. I figured I'd been skating for 20 years and "The worst I could do would be skin up my hands & knees." That cockiness cost me my left temporal lobe and changed my entire life as I knew it.

I'm very grateful for the quick reactions of a few close friends and the neurotrauma until at UNC Chapel Hill. I know life will never be the same, but I'll never do anything without a helmet!
