I was born and raised in Camrose, Alberta. I was introduced to golf around the age of eight and spent the majority of my childhood summers playing golf with my brother Andrew. In 2015,  I was encouraged by Bill Penny to join the golf team at Augustana. Playing college golf was an awesome experience for me and my passion for the game grew exponentially during those years.
