I was born and raised in a small town in northern California where there was a four lane bowling center (known as a bowling alley, at that time). I began working there setting pins at the age of 13 and bowling there for five years.
After moving to southern California, I went to work in a bowling pro shop in Torrance in 1973. In 1978 I went to work for a wholesale bowling supply business in Seattle. In 1980 I came to San Diego and opened San Diego Bowling Supply where I have been serving the bowlers of San Diego County for 33 years. San Diego Bowling Supply has sponsored a scratch league at Kearny Mesa Bowl for five years.
