Get To Know Your Driller: 

1.Favorite thing to do outside of bowling and why?

 Favorite thing to do outside of bowling is play disc golf. I started playing disc golf my

senior year of high school and love the challenge and excitement it brings.

2. Favorite movie of all time and why?

Right now it’s Snowpiercer or Avatar. I never get tired of watching either of them.

3. Favorite bowling ball of all time and why?

The original AMF Black Angle. I was given the ball my freshman year of college. I love

it for short or low-volume medium patterns. I have 3 300s with it and I don’t think it

will ever leave my bag.

4. Sports fan? favorite teams? and why?

I am a huge nut. My mom is from Lansing, Michigan so I grew up a huge Michigan

State Spartans fan. I follow the world of sports very closely and consider it one of my

passions. Fantasy sports are awesome and I’m normally in a handful of football and

basketball leagues each year.

5. Your favorite thing about your job at Virtue and why?

I love being in a bowling center and talking about bowling. Interacting with

customers is definitely the best part. Everyone approaches the game a bit

differently, so I find pleasure in hearing many different stories.

6. If you had to describe your personality in one word, what would it be?

Ambitious
