I began bowling when I was in second grade. My parents, along with some of my friends' parents, wanted to get us out of the house when we were done with school on Fridays. They signed us up for a PAL League, and I instantly fell in love with the sport. I continued bowling until 6th grade, where I stopped to play Baseball and Soccer. After a year, I missed the sport of bowling unbelievable amounts. So, I stopped Baseball and Soccer and went back to Bowling.

I constantly worked at my game and got involved in a Pro Shop. I would find myself at the bowling alley around the corner from my house from 3 P.M until 12 A.M. every day. Bowling has always been my outlet. It was, and still continues to be, my way to escape from all the negativity and just be me. Bowling isn't just a part of my life; it is a part of who I am.

All of the hard work I have put in on and off the lanes has paid off. I was a member of Junior Team USA 2013 and was recently Selected to be a member of Junior Team USA 2014. I represented the United States of America in Puerto Rico at the 2013 Pan American Bowling Confederation Championships, and returned home with Three (3) Gold Medals and One (1) Silver Medal. None of that would have been possible without my Hammer Equipment. Hammer Bowling is the NUMBER ONE company in bowling that produces THE BEST bowling balls. I would also like to thank The Perfect Fit Pro Shop, Maple Family Centers, and all my family and friends for your constant support. I would not be where I am today without all of you.
