I was a 4-year college athlete competing in men’s golf. I became the youngest captain in the teams history my sophomore year after winning the Bucknell Invitational as a Freshman. This was also a Rider University first. I continued on to be a three-time team captain in the following years.  I was also the first recipient of the Ed Eget Scholarship for outstanding achievement in both academics and athletics and served as the Vice President for Rider’s Student Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC). As a senior, I led Rider to a best-ever ranking of 10th in the Mid-Atlantic Region in the fall of 2003, and in the spring of 2004 led Rider to a fifth-place finish in the MAAC Championships when he placed fifth overall among the 45 golfers. As a junior, I led Rider to a fourth-place finish at the MAAC Championships, and as a sophomore, I also led Rider to a fourth-place MAAC finish. 

After I graduated in 2004 I became the Assistant Coach under Chet Dalgewicz for the following two years.  After the retirement of Coach Dalgewicz, I was hired to become the Head Golf Coach at the beginning of the 2007 fall season.  I coached for the following seven seasons winning several tournaments as a team.  I resigned at the end of the 2014 season to start a family.  My daughter, Brooke, was born the following October of 2015.  In September of 2017 my wife, Brianna, got hired for a company out of Cary, North Carolina so we picked up everything in New Jersey and moved down south.  And that is where we currently reside.
