Tell us about yourself
I grew up in Nebraska and my Dad introduced me to golf at a young age. I played golf throughout high school and was fortunate to play golf in college (West Texas State & Nebraska) as well. We were members at Meadowbrook CC for years until it closed and a few years ago, we joined Indian Hills CC
Why did you want to partner with CLG?
CLG is a great local organization that supports our community and aligns well with our company’s values and goals. CLG has provided a ton of opportunities for both of our kids (Ben-17, Ella-14) during the past 10-12 years, and being able to support CLG via our GGF sponsorship is a WIN for both our family and our small business.

What is it like running a small business?
Golf and running a small business are similar in that they are both extremely difficult, lonely at times, and come with a lot of ups & downs. However-the process of learning to overcome the challenges of both to see the fruits of your labors is extremely satisfying and not comparable to many other things in life.
What are your top golf experiences?
My personal experiences in golf have been wonderful – still can’t explain how in awe I was the first time I walked onto Augusta to see a Masters practice round in the late 90’s or the pure feeling of playing a great course like Bandon Dunes. However most of the top golf experiences my wife, Erin, and I have had have been with our kids. Being a part of helping them learn the game, caddying for them, seeing them compete at a high level, and now having them both beat me like a drum has been so fulfilling.
