As a member of the PGA of America, I have enjoyed the opportunity to share my knowledge and experiences in the game of golf with others.  I have been fortunate to host, promote and develop golf travel programs for members, friends and fellow golf professionals at golf destinations around the world.  I plan, organize and host group golf trips to some of my favorite golf destinations.  Golf has been a big part of my life and I hope that never ends.  Today I utilize my training and experiences to consult PGA Professionals in the development of their career goals.  I work with Employers to make sure they hire the most qualified candidates to fill their open positions.  My end game...make sure that everyone I deal with has the opportunity to excel, realize their goals and enjoy the spoils they have earned.
