Born and raised on the family farm in Cochrane. I grew up as a junior golfer at Cochrane club, bearspaw country club  and also The Hamptons.

I moved to Arizona to attend the golf academy of America for 3 years working on my golf game and playing junior hockey. 

Once I returned to Alberta I spent one season split between Sundre golf club and collicutt siding golf course. 

The following season in 2011 I started my dream path of climbing the ranks at the Links of Gleneagles!
