My name is Ryan I'm 30 years old, I have 3 kids as well. Two stepdaughters 12 and 11 and I have one little boy 1 and a half. As far as what pays for my habit I'm in RV sales and have been working at this dealership for 3 years. Doubtful that I'd leave here because the money is good and I can hang-out online during most of the day and it is low stress.
I've been playing pool since I was 7 or 8, I learned how to play in my grandparents basement on an old 7' bar box. I got pretty good in my mid to late teens while working at different billiard shops setting up tables and playing nights. I got away from the game for a good long while but the urge to play never left me. I met my wife almost 4 years ago and she's given me the latitude to play just about as much as I like. I've put in more practice and table time in the last 2 years than I ever have so its safe to say I'm playing the best pool I've ever played but like everyone I have miles to go.
Sometime later this year or early next year I'd like to go to that pool school in Dallas. It's been something I've been wanting to do for a long time, plus I think it would make a big difference in my wife's game too.
