Proud husband and father of 2 girls. 
Born and raised in Ste Rose Manitoba, small French farming community. I enjoyed playing sports and got my first golf club at age 8 and started playing tournaments at 10. I was fortunate to have the support of Manitoba golf hall of famer Stan Homeniuk. My success as a junior allowed me to earn an athletic scholarship at Western Texas College as part of the men’s golf team. 

After college I turned professional attempting to gain status on PGA Tour Canada. After a few failed attempts at Q-school I spent 15 years working in Oil & Gas industry. I’ve now refocused my attention on the golf industry and became a PGA of Canada member having spent the last 3 years working at The Kelowna Golf and Country Club.
