I was born and raised in Glen Ellyn, attended Marquette University earning degrees in Finance and Marketing (2009), and lived in Chicago from 2009 -2020. In the midst of COVID my wife and I relocated temporarily to Cleveland to be closer to her family – now that some restrictions have been eased and we can more easily travel in between cities, we have decided to plant our roots in the suburbs (we just bought a home in Wheaton). I spent the first 11 years of my career working in recycling – a field that I grew to love and still strongly advocate for (I’ll try not to be seen digging plastic out of the garbage). Aside from my interest in trash, I love playing golf (a passion that drew me to this position), live music (my wife and I would try to make it to a few shows per month pre-COVID), and sports teams that will always make me sad (Bears, White Sox, Marquette hoops, etc.). I am excited to continue meeting all of you and look forward to meeting your fabulous guests!

As a child we would come here with our cousin's who were members at the time and always enjoyed the club life so Rolling Green holds a special place in my heart. I have been with the club now since March of 2019 and look forward to serving all of our members for years to come.

I became the Head Professional in 1991 and I am proud to still be here today.Outside of the club, I enjoy golf and spending time with my wife Marie. I have served 6 years on the Illinois PGA Board of Directors and have been serving on the Finance Committee for many years as well. I was awarded the IPGA Senior Masters Honor in 2013.One of my fondest memories at Rolling Green was also the day I scored my lowest 18 hole score here at the Club. It was Ladies “Beat the Pro” day and I scored 66. Don’t worry, I did apologize to the Ladies League!
