I was born in San Rafael California.
I moved to Oregon when I was 5 years old. I attended Klamath Union High School and Oregon Institute of Technology. I have been in the golf course industry for over 30 years. I became the Superintendent at Prineville from 2002 to 2005 before becoming the superintendent at Shield Crest in 2005.
I enjoy the great outdoors by fishing and hunting any chance I can. I have been married to my wife Danielle for 25 years and have 2 wonderful, beautiful children Derek and Kaylee.
