Why am I doing this?


Being a PGA Professional has brought many opportunities. It has allowed me to teach and aid seniors, men, women and juniors while enjoying golf and all its benefits. Serving in the USAF (United States Air Force), I have a common interest in PGA HOPE and the benefits it can bring to the men and women who have served at the sacrifice of mental and physical ailments. If playing 100 holes of golf can help these men and women have a better life, it is an easy decision.




Goal: $1500


I started my career as an Assistant Professional in 2010 at Stonebrooke Golf Club. In 2015, I became the Head Golf Professional. I played in Minnesota PGA events including, but not limited to the Minnesota Senior Open, Minnesota Senior PGA Championship. I attended Brown Institute acquiring a degree in electronics. My second career led me to the PGA of America PGA/PGM 2.0 program graduating in 2015 as a PGA Class A member. I have recently completed CPP 2.0 Certifications in Golf Operations, Player Development, Teaching and Coaching. I also served in the United States Air Force.
