Pen Spin Endeavours: As the founder of the Pen Spinning Naming Committee at UPSB, I had assisted in the organization of English Pen Spinning nomenclature in use today. A few trick names from the Naming Committee include: ThumbAround, Devil's Sonic, Inverse Tricks, and many more.
I would occasionally develop Freestyle Combos. My latest projects include the making of a feature video, separate from the promotional videos.
Favourite Tricks: ThumbSpin 1.5 Normal, Backaround Normal
Favourite Combos: Inverse Sonic 1.5 to Continuous Fingerless ThumbSpin 1.5, NeoBak Fall, Continuous Backaround 1.5 Normal
Tricks learned: Most major variations of ThumbSpin, Infinity, Backaround, Sonic, Shadow, Charge families etc.
Most frequently used combination: Backaround 1.5 to Forward 1.5. The tricks that I practice less often are most FingerPass variations, i-Sonic, and two-handed tricks.
Favourite Conceptual Combo: Continuous BackRiser 2.0 Normal
Pen Spinning-related Vision: One day, Pen Spinning shall become an art that has a status equivalent, if not more than, of that of mainstream juggling.
