I remember my 5th birthday at Chuck
E. Cheese, when I got my first set of clubs. I
have had a passion for this game forever. I
played golf in college
at Fresno State along with my former
teammate Nick Watney. Our team was often
ranked in the top 25 and at one point in the
10 in the Nation for Division 1 golf. I
graduated from the Sid Craig School of
Business at Fresno State with a degree in
Business Management and Entrepreneurship.
There are times in my life that golf has
consumed me more than anything else that
seemed important at the time. I always strive
to be the best that I can be, whether it is in
business, personal life, or golf.

Golf destinations wish list
I would love to play Cypress Point Golf Club, Augusta National Golf Club, Pine Valley Golf Club, The Old Course of St. Andrews. Whistling Straits, Bethpage Black, Shinnecock Hills, and I'm sure there are plenty more!
I have always enjoyed competing, whether it is golf, basketball, football, soccer, sales, or any board games. I have always believed in staying fit. I also believe in making sure you have balance in life with your personal life, golf, work, and anything else that may be of interest. I also love trying new places to eat, you never know what great spot you may find!
Greatest Golf Moment
I often try and reflect on what my greatest golf moment has been, but I try to think what made everyone the most content. I would have to say when our team at Fresno State won the WAC Title in Houston, Texas. I wasn't playing the greatest the entire tournament, but somehow I willed a decent round on the final day. The hole was a dogleg left par 5, water all along the left hand side and water surrounding the left side of the green and behind the green. The pin was tucked front right, so there was no option to bail out right and make birdie. I knew I wasn't hitting it great, but I finally hit a drive in the fairway and had a great look at the pin from 197 yards out. I pulled out 6 iron and definitely had some nerves going, but I visualized the shot and trusted my swing. I hit my 6 iron to 3 feet and made the putt for eagle!! After finishing the round our team was waiting for the final groups to finish up. Our coach made us well aware that it was going to be very close! After the last few groups finished, the scorers totaled up the final scores and we won the championship by a single shot!
