I woke up Christmas morning in 1994, excited as any kid would be, to open presents.  I had no idea one of those presents would get me to where I am today, a plastic set of golf clubs.  Ever since then my passion for the game has continually grown.  After high school at Spring Valley, I set out on a path of becoming a golf professional.  I graduated from Golf Academy of America Carolinas in December of 2015. My studies involved Tournament Operations, Advanced Methods of Teaching and Complex Golf Operations.  I moved back to Columbia to pursue my career as a golf professional and to be around my family and friends.
