ACCOLADES: 2016 SCPGA Desert Chapter Player of the Year, 2016 SCPGA Desert Chapter Assistant Champion, 2017 SCPGA Desert Chapter Assistant Professional of the Year, 2018 SCPGA Desert Chapter Associate Player of the Year, 2019 SCPGA Desert Chapter Junior Golf Development Leader, 2020 SCPGA Desert Chapter Professional Development of the Year, 2022 SCPGA Desert Chapter Teacher of the Year

EXPERIENCE: A Teaching Professional since 2005. I have worked at the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort since 2001. Before turning professional in 2005, I played at College of the Desert on the golf team that won a Team State Championship in 2004. I have been teaching golf schools, private lessons, junior golf, and group clinics ever since and have competed in many SCPGA and Desert Chapter Golf Tournaments, winning several events over the years.

PHILOSOPHY: Each golfer has different issues, I address each student's needs and what the student wants to improve on. I do my best to make sure each student has a foundation of proper setup and mechanics for each shot in the game.

PERSONAL INTERESTS: Outside of golf, I have a wonderful family: Katie (wife), Gavin (son), and Gracie (daughter). Additionally, I like NASCAR and collect different species of palm trees.
