Began in the golf business at age 13 as a Caddie at the Kalamazoo Country Club in Michigan and eventually worked in the bagroom through High School. Attended Ferris State University where I did internships at The Seaview Marriott Resort and Spa in Atlantic City, and The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, Jupiter. Finished school and returned to Kalamazoo CC as an Assistant Golf Professional to PGA Merchandiser of the year Dick Stewart. For two years, spent summers in Kalamazoo and winters back at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club. In 2006, worked for one season at Greg Norman's Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, FL. Then moved on to The Dye Preserve Golf Club in Jupiter where I am now The Head Golf Professional.
