I was born and raised in Manchester, IA, a town of around 5000 people. My parents own the local 12 lane bowling center where I spent my entire childhood. I started bowling scratch tournaments on the Greater Iowa Scholarship Bowling Tour when I was 13, rolling 300 in my very first event. When I was 17, a dream came true by earning my way on to Jr. Team USA. This helped me earn a scholarship to bowl at Wichita State University. I later then graduated from Wichita State with a degree in Sport Management.
I love doing just about anything outdoors; camping, hunting, playing most sports, and especially fishing. I listen to all types of rock music, with heavy metal being my favorite. I play the guitar. I am a diehard Iowa Hawkeye football fan, and I enjoy watching the Colts and Falcons when I watch the NFL. My favorite food is definitely fresh fish. I am IBPSIA Certified and love spending time in the Pro Shop.
