I have been bowling for as long as I can remeber and have been bowling competitively ever since

I was in 9th grade in high school traveling all over the country in various bowling events.

I have been part of the Hammer Staff since the year 2000.

I started bowling because both of my parents had no choice but to take me with them to their leagues because no babysitter wanted to watch me. They would take me with them and just turn on a pair of lanes, and I would bowl for hours and hours until they were done.

I love the Hammer brand because it is a perfect fit for me for many reasons. They are a very loyal company to be a part of and the equipment they have fits about every different style out there. I feel that as long as Hammer allows me to be on staff with them that this could be a lifetime relationship.

I do not bowl for a living, nor do I try and survive with just bowling, but over the years I have had a lot of great success, met a lot of great people, and made thousands of friends. For me, to get to do something I really love to do and make money at it, is just gravy to me.

I really feel that there is no better brand in bowling to be a part of outside of "Hammer Nation."
