“I had asthma growing up, so that limited some of the sports that I could play. Bowling wasn’t too rigorous on my lungs, so I started doing that and I (thought) ‘I can get into this.’ It was a lot easier to do and it just stuck with me. I’ve been bowling since I was nine until now.”

In his ten years at UNM, Thomas Gutierrez has bowled for the UNM Bowling Team, played trumpet for the UNM Spirit Marching Band and is one of the Anderson School of Management’s Technology Support Coordinator.
