I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and moved to Calgary soon after.  I am a husband to an amazing wife and a father to my to great kids.  I currently sit on the PGA of Alberta Board and enjoy being part of a great organization. 

My golf career started at Priddis Greens and I turned professional at the Glencoe Golf and CC the following year.  I spent 10 years at the Glencoe under Don Price and then was fortunate to qualify for the Canadian Tour where I played full time professionally for 3 years.  I tried a few other things after playing but realized my passion will always be golf. Playing made me realize that I wanted a different kind of help then what was available so I opened my own teaching academy.  I find it very rewarding to bring people to the game of golf and help those that are in the game play better.  I am on a mission to become the coach that I wish I could have found when I needed help playing.  One of the top qualities any golfer can have is desire, give me that and I will give you all the help we can to help reach your goals.
