Building on my family's golf heritage and passion for competitive amateur golf <my Dad played for University of Delaware, my Uncles played for University of Tulsa (Kevin), Ramapo College (Gerry) and Montclair State University (Tim)>, I plan to continue my academic and golf development on the collegiate level, while becoming a valuable asset and contributor to a great institution and golf team. Through the leadership (#1 man for St. Peter's Prep all 3 years) I displayed by helping a St. Peter's Prep golf team that was never ranked in NJ's top 50 to become a golf power and #6 in NJ in just three short years, I hope to contribute and lead my future college golf team to achieve and exceed our coach's objectives.

After playing varsity basketball both my freshman and sophomore years at one of the New York City area's top hoops programs (St. Peter's) and spending 363-days per year in the Prep gym, I decided in 2013 to forego basketball and focus on my competitive golf schedule and emerging golf development. Building on my size (6'2", 185 lbs.) and athleticism, I am excited about the opportunity to practice extensively this summer and compete in a full schedule of amateur and junior golf events.
