PROfile

My career in golf began as a teenager in the London Ontario area where I worked in back shops, pro shops and on maintenance teams for several courses in and around London. During those years, I grew to appreciate and enjoy the many facets of the golf course operations. I made the decision shortly after University, that becoming a golf professional and running a golf facility and teaching people how to golf would be an amazing career. To make this goal a reality, I traveled to Orlando Florida to enroll in the Professional Golfers Career College, which is a college that blended the business of golf, and the game of golf. While in Florida, I had the privilege of meeting and studying from some of Americas and Canadas best Professionals in the categories of Instruction, Club Fitting, Golf Operations, Events and the History of the Game.

I moved to Calgary in 2010, and shortly thereafter joined the PGA of Canada. I consider myself a proud and involved member of the PGA of Canada and have really enjoyed gaining more experience in Golf Operations, Instruction and Club Fitting. I have enjoyed several roles since joining the PGA, and look forward to continuing to build experience in my current Role as Head Golf Professional at Woodside Golf Club in Airdrie Alberta.
