I grew up in the Kootenay Region of Southeastern British Columbia. I started golfing when I was about 5 at the Balfour Golf Course. When I was 12 I started working backshop at Balfour and a few years later was brought into the Proshop. After graduating Highschool I did the PGM program Graduating in 2013 from Grant MacEwan.
