Rene Kirby is a self-proclaimed "gimp without a whimp."  He has never let his small stature detract from his active lifestyle. 

Rene (said, "REEN") never wastes time complaining.  Whether he is getting around on all fours or using his specially tailored bike, he feels better constructed than the "normies."

Rene was a star gymnast in high school and also drives, rides horses, boats, welds, does home improvements and plays a variety of sports.

Rene has always been a local VT celebrity but he gained international attention for his role in the Farrelly brothers film, "Shallow Hal."  He has fans all over the world who admire his upbeat attitude.
