I am 34 years old, divorced and share custody of 5 year old daughter Kendyl Pickeral. I have been playing pool since I was 20 but took 7 years off to pursue family life and marriage.

Got back into shooting in 2014 after marital separation so I have been at it again for almost 3 years now. I am one of the strongest SL5 in my league and occasionally shoot in Pro-Am style tournaments on the Action Pool Tour when my custody arrangements allow, I work a full time job to pay bills and child support and I shoot pool for myself.

I constantly find myself in Top 10 or Top 5 in local tournaments and continue knocking on the door of tournament titles locally and with APA Singles Regionals coming up I hope to land in Vegas on a National level.

I’m just a simple country boy with city attitude and a love for this wonderful game of pool that hopefully will provide myself and my daughter with better lives in the near future.
