-Started in the golf industry in the mid 90s under the tutelage of Lorne Rowe, some one who I looked up and admired. Lorne was the one who first believed in me and gave me my first chance to become a golf professional. I learned the golf business through him for many years in Fairmont. Lorne Rowe was a pros pro. I try to represent his memory in everything I do in the golf business.
-I have always studied the golf swing and throughout the years and my first big chance to teach full time came in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where I was the Teaching professional for winters of 2000-2001 at the Cabo San Lucas Country Club. Spent many hours giving lessons and working on the art of teaching.  Worked in many Instruction facilities and clubs in Alberta and BC. 
-My passion for teaching and helping people get better is something that makes everything we do as professionals worth it.
-I feel immensely fortunate to represent the CPGA as a proud member .
