Background

Originally from Alberta, I bring a wealth of experience having played and coached locally, provincially, nationally and internationally.  I am a Class ‘A’ Professional with the PGA of Canada, and am currently the Head Performance Coach for British Columbia Golf.  I also operate my own academy, Elevate Golf Performance, which operates out of Seymour Golf & Country Club where I have been for the past 14 years.  Finally, I also help with Simon Fraser University Golf Program as an Assistant Coach.

I have received several awards for my work over the years, including the 2020 PGA of BC Coach of the Year, 2012 PGA of BC Apprentice Professional of the Year and the 2013 Lower Mainland Junior Leader of the Year.  I am also one of the few Golf Professionals in Canada who are trained to both Coach New Competitors and Coach Developing Competitors, finishing my CNC Certification in 2013.

Teaching Philosophy

I believe in holistic coaching that involves all of the Pillars of Performance: Technical, Tactical, Physical and Mental.
