Golf Course Superintendent
Born and raised in New Jersey, moved to Florida in 1994 and attended Estero High School. After High school I attended FGCU but college was not for me. I loved to cook and make people happy with my food. I entered the world of hospitality and the rest is history. I have a fine dining background, especially steakhouses. I was a corporate trainer for Ruth's Chris steakhouse for 5 years traveling the globe opening new stores and training employees. I have a passion for good food and making things from scratch. I am happily married and the father of 2 wonderful children Britten who is nine and Maddox who is 6. Outside of the club I enjoy playing golf, hanging out with my family and cooking(funny huh). I have been in this business for close to 23 years working in different restaurants around the area and picking the brains of some talented chefs and restaurant owners. Do what you love and love what you do and you won’t work a day in your life is my motto!!239.561.8650 Ext. 3618
