This is the beginning of my fifth year as a dart player but only for the last three and a half years have I been throwing competitive darts in tournaments. I just recently, in 2010, made the cut to throw as a pro ranked dart player.
About five years ago I started throwing darts out of a bar named Lawlor's, not too far from Midway airport in Chicago. From day one I have thrown with house darts that I picked up in the bar and I continue to throw with them now! I plan and hope to keep "upping" my level of play to continue to compete with some of the best players in the world, such as the rest of the Dart Brokers sponsored players.
I have started this year pretty well, winning Pro Mixed Cricket with Shea Reynolds, Pro Doubles 501 with fellow Dart Brokers sponsoree Joe Mateja, and taking Second in Pro Singles Cricket at regionals in Florida. At the Wisconsin regional I had the lucky opprtunity to throw along side Ray Carver, another Dart Brokers player, in Pro Doubles 501 and walked away with a 3rd place trophy.
This past January I threw with Danny Delfino at the Indianapolis regional and placed 2nd in the Pro Doubles 501 and 3rd in the Pro-Am Cricket, also with Danny, and took home my first Pro Singles Cricket championship! A great feeling the first time around!
I hope to keep traveling and playing well this year and years to come to win, win, win!! Thank you to Dart Brokers for the chance to be a part of the team. I will play to my best ability and not let you down!
