As a lifelong fan of the game of golf, I was privileged to turn my passion into my career. In 1995 I began working at Coto de Caza in South Orange County. I started my PGA apprenticeship at Tijeras Creek in Rancho Santa Margarita in 1996. I continued my pursuit of membership at Pacific Golf and Country Club in San Clemente in 1998. I was elected to PGA membership in 2001 and became Head Golf Professional in 2002. I have been privileged to work in some of the finest courses in our county. As a 30+ year resident of Costa Mesa I am happy to be now working in the city I reside.
I am extremely fortunate to have been mentored by many fine PGA Golf Professionals including: Mike Mitzel and Rick Peters at Coto de Caza, Doug Booth at Tijeras Creek, and Scott Hoiseth at Pacific. I am grateful to them all.
I am a student of the game and continue to learn on a daily basis. The biggest influence in my teaching style is Jim Hardy, John Jacobs, Dr. David Wright and E.J.Phister. I met and worked with Jim and E.J. in 2006 and 2007 during my tenure at Pacific.
