I have been lucky enough to be in the golf business since 1979 and have been a Certified Golf Course Superintendent since 1995. What started as a summer job soon became a passion after working for two great superintendents. Throughout my career, I have worked at several courses around the country. I have also helped some earn national recognition for good conditions and excellent environmental stewardship. I always turn to the GCSAA seminars and webcasts for my continuing education as I believe the business is always changing and you can never stop learning. I’ve been fortunate throughout my career to have met some terrific people from around the world and been able to play on some of the nicest courses. Thanks to the Golf Industry Show and the GCSAA Golf Championships, my network has grown greatly.
