I was born in Edmonton Alberta in 1966 and grew up in south west Edmonton .I was a typical kid playing hockey and golfing at the Windermere Golf and Country Club. In the summer of 1980 i went to work for Bill Carrington in the bag room where I worked my way up to associate professional until I left in1992 after 12 years to become the Pro Manager of The Mighty Peace Golf Club. After 7 years I moved to the Edson Golf Club where I spent 6 seasons as Pro manager In 2006 until present I have been at the Broadmoor Public Golf Course in Sherwood Park as Executive Professional. Tournament organization and club fitting are two areas of the industry that I have really enjoyed and in 2003 and 2004 I was recognized as the Ping Regional Club Fitter of the year. I t was a great opportunity to be a guest of Ping Canada in Phoenix and be able to meet and play golf with Mr John Solheim and Ping CEO Doug Hawkin. I feel I have been truly blessed to have spent the past 25 years as member of the PGA. I want to thank Bill Carrington for the opportunity he gave me to get my PGA card and for the guidance and friendship he has given me over the years. In my spare time I enjoy to play golf, ski and coach my kids hockey teams. Boating and fishing are my new favourite pastimes
