West Mifflin, PA 

My dad took me bowling for the first time when I was six years old, from that point on I was hooked. My goal was to just beat him one time. Of course he LET me win a few games and that made me want more. I won my first tournament at the age of eighteen and ended up becoming the youngest bowler ever on a TV Show called Pittsburgh's Bowling Best. Some other accomplishments I have had are winning the 2005 Genesee Beer Scratch Tournament and my father-in-law and I have also finished fifth at the 2003 ABC National Tournament in Open Doubles.

The sport of bowling has given me the chance to wake up everyday and enjoy going to work. I am the proud owner of Duff's Pro Shop in Pittsburgh, PA and have been in the industry for 27 years. I have been given the opportunity to meet people and make friends that I would have never known if not for our great sport. The chance to represent the Hammer Brand has me more excited than I have been in a long time. I am looking forward to my best year ever.
