I started bowling when I was 14 years old, and really got started because I wanted to get out of the scorching Arizona heat. I moved to Arizona from Chicago when I was 12 years old, and wasn’t quite ready for the “dry heat”. I had a friend who bowled and gave me an old ball of his and once I was able to start throwing a hook, I was “hooked”. I eventually met John Conoway who would be my mentor, so to speak, for a number of years. I got into more competitive leagues where I met some of my long time friends. I eventually ended up bowling my first 300 game at 21 years old with a Hammer Hawg at Desert Sky lanes. I was able to get some more 300’s but didn’t crack the 800 barrier until 2015. It was worth the wait though as it was a huge 800 series with 260, 300, 299 for 859. That was with a Roto Grip Hyper Cell skid, which is still one of my favorite balls of all time. I still have success in terms of scoring, and average in the 220+ range, but have learned that it’s really all about the people. I enjoy being able to bowl with my good friends and have a good time. Through this, I was very excited to be hired as a Brunswick Regional Staff Member in 2015, which allowed me to be a part of another fun bowling community, Team Brunswick.
