I began bowling at the age of 10 when my uncle took me to the bowling center during the summer time. It was 25 cents a game to bowl and I instantly became hooked. I competed in a lot of sports when I was younger, but become more and more focused on bowling as I grew up. Bowling has been my entire life and I am thankful every day that I get to bowl for a living.
It's an honor to be a part of the Storm team. They are the best in the business and they truly the Bowlers Company!
When I am not bowling I like to watch movies and read books. Unlike most bowlers I don't golf much and I am truly terrible at it. I do, however, play a mean game of Air Hockey. I am a Cleveland Browns fan and a die hard Cubs fan. I also have grey hair on the sides of my head as a result of being a Cubs fan. It's a love/hate relationship to say the least. My wife Erin is a collegiate National Champion. I never had the honor of winning a collegiate title and Erin holds this over my head ever chance she gets.
Bowling runs in our family to say the least.

When practicing I like to work on a variety of releases. I like to play a lot of different parts of the lane so I take a lot of time to make sure I am sharp playing straight as well as hooking it. I do a lot of one and three step drills to keep my swing loose and my timing correct. I bowl at a six lane center in Oberlin, OH. My coach, Tom Reid, always takes the time to put patterns for me. He also keeps an eye on my game to make sure I am in time and throwing it well. I usually practice every day of the week except for Tuesday. I am lucky to have such a great coach and a great center to practice at.
