I have been in the golf industry for over 20 years, 16 of which has been as a golf professional. After an 11 year tenure at the Leduc Golf Club I am thrilled to return to the Mill Woods Golf Club and take over as Director of Golf.  I am happily married to my wonderful wife Claire, who I met at Kings University while completing my Commerce Degree. In February of 2016 we had our first child; a beautiful baby girl named Hazel, and in December 2018 we had Soren, our blue eyed boy, and in November of 2021 we had our little Rosie, a beautiful baby girl.  They are the best part of every day for us. I have enjoyed the challenges and experiences this industry has afforded me, and will continue to pursue creativity and push big experiences. #rumble
