ABOUT ME

A transplanted "Canuck" since 1993, my hat currently hangs in Michigan by way of apprenticeship tenures in both Carolina's and New Jersey. 

What innocently began as a few of my first golf swings in my grandparents backyard at the age of 10, evolved twenty years in the making into a fruitful career  of tremendous experiences, education, and networking relationships.

Each step of my career has generated new challenges, incredible building block  opportunities, and invaluable mentoring to grow in our service-oriented profession. The cross section and exposure to semi-private, high-end private, exclusive, and national membership type properties ensure well-rounded learning environments that demand different skill sets, communication styles, and ever-changing priorities to secure operational successes for the entire team. 

One of the key transition factors to each venue along my journey is found in the traditions of this great game. Whether the core foundations of a club are held simply by their age, legendary history, established culture, or their unwavering devotion to a caddie program, my desire is to see golf protected in its beautiful simplicity.  

I am appreciative of those who have devoted boundless energy in expressing their knowledge and passions to benefit so many. It is a testament to their leadership and coaching - something I strive to emulate daily.

 Travel with club members provides indispensable value to the culture and relationship with a club. Whether here or abroad, each is an adventure that brings its own stories, laughter, and everlasting memories. Having just completed my twelfth trip to Ireland & the U.K this past May, I am fortunate to have enjoyed a war-chest of those gifts and more.

Outside of golf, haberdashery is an area of great affection. As only the fifth Head Golf Professional at Cascade Hills since the club's founding in 1921, each has owned the Golf Shop and I was elated to carry the tradition forward. Not simply a golf shop, I find tremendous satisfaction in what our team presents to the club membership and  guests in terms of product variety, creative & imaginative merchandising, and inspiring customer service.

Tournament programming and event environments can deliver enormous benefit to the club experience. Similar to a golf shop, imagination and idea sharing can elevate the product to new heights. Every club in the country hosts tournaments, but executing the "wow factor" increases demand and next level memories and successes.

Q U O T E S

Golf is a science, the study of a lifetime, in which you may exhaust yourself but never your subject. It is a contest, a duel, or melee, calling for skill, courage, strategy and self-control. It is a test of temper, a trial of honour, a revealer of character. It affords a chance to play the man and act the gentleman. It means going into God’s out-of-door getting close to nature, fresh air, exercise, a sweeping away of the mental cobwebs, genuine recreation of tired tissues. It is a cure for care, an antidote to worry. It includes, companionship with friends, social intercourse, opportunities for courtesy, kindliness, and generosity to an opponent. It promotes not only physical health, but moral force.
— David R. Forgan, 1899
 
 
Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots - but you have to play the ball where it lies.
— Bobby Jones
Golf is a game, and talk and discussion is all to the interests of the game. Anything that keeps the game alive and prevents us being bored with it is an advantage. Anything that makes us think about it, talk about it, and dream about it is all to the good and prevents the game becoming dead.
— Alister MacKenzie
