    Biography:

    My main focus starts with my kids. I have two children (Kaitlyn, 13 and Trey, 6) that are the center of my world. Kaitlyn is a very accomplished dancer already, with dreams of Performing Arts School as well as the big stage someday. Trey is your typical 6 year old boy…loves baseball, wrestling, and recently has found a love for bowling. Spending time with them is my ultimate release, and it’s what I enjoy most. Recently I’ve discovered a love for fitness. Although it started more out of necessity than desire, due to some serious health problems that I’d been dealing with for most of the last 20 years - I needed a lifestyle change. With the help of a good friend, I’ve been able to “re-shape” my body and mind for the better. This newfound love for fitness has helped me physically and mentally, and created new opportunities for my future.

    I grew up in the lumber and building business, but always had a love for bowling. My Mother bowled professionally for few years, and my Father has always bowled as well. I always thought my future lied in Professional Bowling, but I chose to go the family business route and run our lumber yard instead. In the meantime, I got involved with drag racing and building competitive show cars as a hobby, but bowling was always still there. Finally, in 1999, I decided to join the PBA, and that was the springboard to where I am now.

    I’ve always been a realist….I understand where my talent level is. I may never be a top 10 player, like a Norm Duke or a Pete Weber…but I guarantee you that I will work as hard as anybody to accomplish whatever I can. My goal was always to win a PBA National Championship, and I was very fortunate to achieve that goal in 2009. Now, no matter what happens, nobody can ever take that away. Whether I win 1 or 100 titles, my kids will always call me Daddy….and that’s what matters most.
