Born in Edmonton, Alberta I started working in the golf industry at the age of 14 years old. My first job was in the backshop at the Windermere Golf & CC from 1994-1999. In late 1999 I passed the PAT examination and became an Apprentice Professional in the Alberta PGA. I spent 2000-2006 at the Belvedere Golf & CC, where over that time I passed my class A exam and became an Associate professional. Opportunity knocked in 2007 and I returned to the Windermere Golf & CC as an Associate professional and then received the title of Head Golf Professional in late 2007. In 2009 opportunity knocked once again and I moved to my current role as the Territory Manager in Southern Alberta with Adidas Golf Canada, a position I have proudly held for the last 10 years
