I still have a lot of great memories from my bowling days. My highest finish in a PBA event was second in the 1989 Merced Open on the Regional Tour, and I have cashed on National Tour. However, I could never secure a full time sponsor to stay on tour. With the lone exception of bowling the US Open on a whim in 2001, I have not bowled since 1992. I never bowled to be a league bowler; I only aspired to be on tour. With that possibility fading, so did my desire to bowl.
In 2016, I found out I had cancer. So far, after surgery and radiation, I have been cancer free for over four years. The cancer battle was the toughest thing I ever had to deal with. But just like shooting 295 in front of my parents, these things only serve to make you stronger.
Another fun tidbit is that I created a beer mug called the Two Fisted Drinker (TwoFistedDrinker.com). It always sounds strange to use the term “invented” when referring to a beer mug. But I have three patents on the mug, so there’s that. In that business I do it all single-handedly: Design the web site. Secure product. Do the books. Design the packaging…I mean EVERYTHING! It’s been a great learning experience. The mug is highly rated on Amazon, and there’s nothing better than knowing something you developed is being given as a gift and creating smiles.
And lastly – the reason for this site – I have started doing standup comedy. You can see my event calendar here: (Event Calendar). If you come to one of my shows, you absolutely need stop me to say hi. I prefer it to not be in the middle of my set, however. But I’d love to meet you!
