    I was born in Blairmore AB many years ago. I first took up golf in 1970 and took lessons at Allreds Golf School in 1973 through my High School Bishop Caroll in Calgary AB. For the next 25 years I golfed recreationally and in 1998 made the decision and committment to pursue this wonderful game professionally. Over the course of the next 20 years I was able to complete my schooling pass the playability test, and obtain my Class A status in 2010.  I have enjoyed every moment of the past 20 years whether it was competing in  some of my first tournaments, going back to College, creating and implementing leagues, learning all the ins and outs of the retail end of the golf business, or my greatest passion teaching.

I have been fortunate to have been able to work at various golf facilities from the Glencoe Golf & CC to McCall Lake golf course and Delacour Golf Club. Working at various clubs has enabled me to obtain a wealth of knowledge and skill sets that have contributed to my growth in becoming a competent knowlegedable Class A PGA Professional.

I look forward to the next 20 years and the continuing learning process that in inherent to the golf business and grow personally in my pursuit of helping to grow the wonderful game of golf and help everyone and anyone who I may cross paths with
