I have acquired General Manager and Golf Professional experience at private, resort and high-end daily fee properties throughout Southern California and the Caribbean since 1991. Professional experience includes General Manager of Los Serranos CC, La Cañada Flintridge CC, Marbella G&CC, Riverwalk GC, and Palmas del Mar Country Club (Puerto Rico); Head Golf Professional at The Crosby Club, Palmas del Mar CC, Lost Canyons GC, and Assistant Golf Professional & Tournament Director positions at Sherwood CC, Oak Creek GC, and Pelican Hill GC.

I was very fortunate to be a member of the "opening team" of golf professionals at Pelican Hill Golf Club (1991), Oak Creek Golf Club (1996) and Lost Canyons Golf Club (2000). My experience includes involvement with 4 PGA Tour Events at Sherwood Country Club, including the "Showdown at Sherwood," the first Prime Time match between Tiger Woods and David Duval, and 3 Franklin Templeton Shark Shootouts (1997-1999).

I embrace the traditional role of the PGA Professional as not only the leader for a property's golf program, but also promoting participation in all activities at the club using a modern, yet understated, approach as needed. I have been a successful promoter of all aspects of a golf club, including customer service, tournaments, instruction, food and beverage operations, club member relations, and merchandising to provide a memorable experience for my club members and customers every day.  This strategy resulted in Los Serranos CC being named the California Golf Course Owners' Association 2012 Course of the Year award winner.
