Dustin Markowitz

Biography

Dustin J. Markowitz is a lifelong bowler who literally grew up in the bowling world when he started at the tender age of 4. With guidance from his Pro Shop owning parents Brian and Heidi, Dustin established himself as a charismatic and talented competitor in the Colorado River Valley and throughout Northwestern Arizona, Southern California and Southern Nevada. Dustin went on to set several local junior records and represented his region with pride in a variety of tournaments and functions as a bowler and as an ambassador.

Dustin turned to the competitive adult bowling world at 17 and soon began a career off the lanes as well as on it. Through his 20s he became known locally as a tournament coordinator and regional competitor with a flare for innovative tournaments and formats. His true passion, however, was bowling journalism in which he garnered national attention with his editorial “What Happened To Bowling” with publication in several major bowling newspapers and a weekly column formerly featured on above180.com. In 2011, Dustin suffered a terrible shoulder injury after a workplace accident which indirectly led to the creation of BOWLINGEVOLVED.COM, an online bowling talk show co-created and co-hosted by PBA Legend Eric Forkel.

Today, Dustin is back on the lanes and continues to co-host Bowling Evolved with a passion on relating the best of the bowling world. Most importantly, however, he continues throwing the balls from the company that stood by him through thick and thin and helps him get MOTIVated each and every day on the lanes.

"It is an honor to represent such a great ball company and a privilege to use such amazing equipment. With them by my side I know that any goal I have in this sport is possible to achieve. GO TEAM MOTIV!!!!!"
