 As a visitor to San Francisco, I walked upon the Sunday skating scene at 6th Avenue and became completely enraptured by the whole spectacle. I became hypnotized while watching the rollerdancers and imagined myself in the midst of it. Every time I returned to the City I made it a point to walk through Golden Gate Park so that I could observe the magic of the skatin' place.

When I finally moved to San Francisco, I got my first pair of quads and started learning some dances and keeping track of them in a notebook. Almost a year later, and after much prodding and with some reserve, I decided to tackle the Friday Night Skate. I got a pair of cheap inlines, and with a great deal of patience and help from my friends, I began preparing myself for the skate. I asked for pearls of wisdom from every veteran I came in contact with and finally started the FNS. I became addicted after my first night and have never looked back - only forward to every Friday, Sunday, and any other day of the week that I can put my skates on and go outside to experience the beauty that skating has brought to my life.
