Born and raised in the coastal town of Hope, Maine, I have always been a lover of everything outdoors. I majored in Horticulture with a focus in golf course management at Southern Maine Community College; after which I completed the Winter School Turf program at Umass Amherst.
I first realized my love for the industry when I spent the summer of 2011 in Colorado working as a grounds crew member at Pole Creek Golf Club. It was an incredible experience that left me with a desire to learn more about the trade and find success within the field.
In 2012 my love for the ocean brought me back to the grand state of Maine and I was hired as the second assistant at Portland Country Club, a Donald Ross designed course. Here my work included managing staff, irrigation repair, spraying of greens, tees, and fairways along with hand watering, daily mowing, and course setup. During my time at PCC I was a part of a master plan renovation that included 86 new bunkers, 3 new tees, and 21,000 square feet of green expansions. Other construction projects around the course were also common assignments that I had.
Every learning opportunity that presented, I took. From volunteeing at multiple tournaments such as The Dell Technology Championship — 2015, 2016, 2017, where I worked directly with Tom Brodeur, to working with Dr. Swier at Weevil Trak — 2015,2016 to better understand annual blue grass weevils and the most effective way to control them.
In August 2017 I started as a senior assistant at Fairview Country Club, a Robert Trent Jones designed course, working with Jim Pavonetti. Here I work to establish and enforce operating procedures and work standards that will produce high quality playing conditions and to ensure adequate performance and personal safety.
