I was born and raised in the Washington D.C. area. Growing up I spent my time fishing, golfing, swimming, playing soccer, ice hockey, baseball, tennis and pretty much anything outdoors. I spent most of my summers playing golf at Chevy Chase Club and participating in local junior tournaments. During the winter months I played ice hockey on the team at Chevy Chase Club. When I entered Bethesda Chevy Chase High School I was selected to play on both the Golf and Ice Hockey teams all four years.

My passion for golf grew and I decided that it would be a good career path. I entered Methodist College and enrolled in the Professional Golf Management Program in 2000.

During the summer months I completed the required internships at Four Streams Golf Club, Columbia Country Club and Congressional Country Club. After graduating I was hired by Congressional Country Club where I completed my final internship and received my Class A PGA Membership in January 2006.

I spent three years at Congressional where I learned every aspect of a golf operation and had the opportunity to be involved in the operations of two PGA Tour events. My passion for teaching exploded during my time at Congressional where I taught nearly 400 lessons a year, conducted several one-week long junior golf camps and taught over 20 golf clinics a year.

In 2008 I was hired by Westwood Country Club. Once I started working at Westwood my passion for playing the game competitively flourished. I have learned to enjoy every aspect of the game and respect everything it stands for. I love to compete in local and national tournaments and continue to thrive on the challenges and rewards of teaching.

I consider myself a perpetual student of the game. I enjoy reading about, studying, and exploring everything relating to golf fitness, new teaching techniques and equipment, and swing mechanics. My goal is to help people with everything from their decisions on buying new clubs to actually enjoying themselves on the golf course. I am here to assist you in your golfing needs.
