I was born in Van Nuys, California and moved to Tucson, Arizona with my family when I was 8-years-old. I grew up in Tucson with a passion for playing sports and was fortunate to compete football, basketball, baseball, golf, soccer, and swimming throughout my childhood. Hands down, my true love was baseball. It offered me an opportunity to play at the collegiate level while providing me with an education. I played 2 years at Pima Community College in Tucson, achieving accolades of Conference Pitcher of the Year and All-Conference Honors. I transferred to Arizona State University my junior year. While attending ASU on a baseball scholarship, I achieved honors on the playing field as the Pac-10 Co-Pitcher of the Year, 1st Team All-Conference, and Honorable Mention All-American. Our team attended the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska as the number 2 ranked team in the country. I was selected for the College World Series All-Star team and was chosen by the Minnesota Twins with the 33rd overall pick in the 1993 Major League Baseball amateur draft. I was fortunate to play 5 years in professional baseball at various levels before a shoulder injury forced me to retire in 1998. After retiring, I decided to pursue a career in the golf industry. I worked at several high-end clubs while working on membership into the Professional Golfers Association of America. In 2006, I obtained member status into the PGA. I worked at several Private Clubs in the Sarasota/Bradenton area over the years - TPC Prestancia, The Ritz-Carlton Members Club Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club. I also worked at Doral Golf Resort & Spa in Miami for 4 years. I am blessed with 3 beautiful girls, Isabella (13), Grace (12), and Logan (7) — they are the loves of my life and I enjoy spending as much time with them as possible. If I find any spare time, I enjoy weight lifting, golfing and spending time with my family and friends. I have enjoyed my transition from PGA Professional to Realtor® and look forward to establishing myself as a top-selling agent in the market with Keller Williams on the Water and the Suncoast Club Life Property Group.
