I was born and raised in San Diego, and at age 8 my Dad got me into golf. He took me
to the driving range at Mission Trails Golf Course for my first time to hit golf balls. At
age 9, my Mom and Dad started taking me to compete in San Diego Junior Golf
Association tournaments, and our lives became golf from that point on. They would take
turns taking me to the tournaments, and while keeping an eye on me, they also fully
participated in the events doing the group score keeping and other duties. They were
fully enmeshed, committed, and supportive of my golfing endeavors and exploits.

Golf, and the study and practice of it, were my life growing up from age 8 to 30. All of
my time was directed toward building and tailoring a golf game for competition. I spent
many days, months, years, and decades learning and improving my game, taking
instruction from some of the top teachers around the country, and competing against
the best players in the world.

After playing hundreds of local junior tournaments, as well as many national junior events, I earned a scholarship to play golf at UCLA. I graduated with a degree in
history in ’93. I went on to play professional golf for almost 8 years, playing on various
mini tours including the Futures Tour and Asian Tour, until I qualified to play on the
LPGA Tour in 1998 and 1999.  I retired from tour play in August 2000.


The extensive junior, college, and professional tournament experience I amassed,
taught me to find a way to play better golf in the clutch. With the kind of pressure of
having to make a 6 foot putt to win Nationals in college, or needing to par the last 5
holes at a pro event to make a check and pay my bills that month, I found a way to
make my game stand up under the test.

For the past 10 years now, I have been sharing this accumulated golf knowledge with
my students. My goal is to pass on to them the valuable lessons I have learned from over 20 years of competitive playing experience, and the past ten years of instruction. I have put in the time in order to provide my students with the simplest and most direct way to reach the proven fundamentals and dynamics that work.
