Graduated from Purdue University with a B.S. degree in Turfgrass management in 2000 and then moved overseas, where I worked in Japan, Germany, Togo and then in France. I spent the last 7 years in Paris; two years as the Assistant golf course superintendent at Paris Disneyland and then 5 years as the grow-in and golf course superintendent of the Arnold Palmer designed Vignoly Course. I decided to return to the USA in order to pursue a Masters degree in horticulture at Oregon State in order to research alternative methods of controlling turfgrass diseases, notably Microdochium patch on Poa annua putting greens.
