I was born and raised in Watertown, SD where I was brought up around a family owned construction business that consisted of heavy earth-moving equipment, and also our fair share of snow removal in the winter months. I moved to the valley in January of 2003 where I completed a Turf Management program and started my career in golf at Moon Valley Country Club for the first 6 months. I then started here at the Country Club at DC Ranch in June of 2003 and have not looked back since. I am dedicated to the turf management field and also an active member of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America and also our local Superintendents chapter, Cactus and Pine. I am a proud husband to my wife Colette, and loving father to my 2 sons Oliver and Everette. We enjoy hiking and playing most sports. We also enjoy going to cheer on the Arizona Coyotes hockey team.
