What is something unique about you? I lived in Alaska until I was 7.
Any superstitions? I believe in karma and if I performed well one day, I'll do the same routine the next day.
Why did you choose Wichita State? I chose Wichita State because they had a recipe for success that was obviously working. Wichita State is structured and focused on making you a better person while making you a better bowler.
What do you want to do after graduation? I want to be a professional bowler after I get my degree.
