26 career 800 series with a high of 867

Bowling has been a huge part of my life since I was 4 year old and began youth bowling. During YABA, I won multiple tournaments and continued my bowling career in high school where I bowled on the varsity team for 4 years. I pursued my collegiate bowling career at Morehead State University, an A1 division school. I still bowl competitively and have won tournaments coast to coast, with my most notable accomplishment being The World Team Challenge Grand Nations in 2005. I have been in the proshop business since 2000.

In my off time from bowling, I enjoy spending time with my family, including my fiancé, Casey and my 17 year old daughter, Jazilyn. I also enjoy riding my motorcycle, playing volleyball, playing pool, and fine dining. Drag racing is another hobby of mine and when I’m not racing you may find me at Eldora Speedily watching dirt car racing. When the weather is nice you can find me at our local golf courses. I enjoy staying busy and hanging out with friends.

3 career 800 series with a high of 821

Being only 30 years old bowling has been part of my life for 27 years. I remember my mom taking me to Sat. morning bowling to bowl YABA. Being from a very small town and a center with only 16 lanes participation was always an issue, ever since I can remember. The thrive for the sport has never left me and still to this day as I get older, it only gets stronger. When I am not at the lanes, you can probably catch me at the golf course working on my golf game. I also work in the IT field where I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Computer Science in May 2009.
