I started bowling when I was 3 yrs old as both sets of grandparents and my father were all avid bowlers. I remember when I was 12 yrs old and had to choose between Babe Ruth Baseball and JBT (Junior Bowlers Tour), I choose to dedicate myself to bowling. Shortly thereafter, when I started college at Sacred Heart University, we started a bowling program and I captained the team all four years and we made nationals twice. My proudest accomplishments are shooting 806 on the Earl Anthony Pattern in a sanctioned Sport League and also shooting a sport 300. Also my NEBA title with my good friend Chris Forry.

I was fortunate to start working for Buddies Pro Shop in 2006 and shortly thereafter asked to join the Hammer Amateur staff. I really appreciate all Hammer has done for me. After signing with Hammer, I won our county Bowler of the Year as I had 5-800s and 4-300s in 2006/2007. I have over 60 300s and 25 800s.

I am happily married to my beautiful wife Carolyn and I am a proud father to my boys Dallas (3) and Zac (1).
