Currently the Past President
Over 21 years of turfgrass management experience starting as a member of the grounds crew at the Vancouver Golf Club in 1990-1993, through to beginning my own independent company in 2004, specializing in turfgrass management, with the focus of plant health being the key to success.
My goals and aspirations for our Industry are to become environmentally responsible for providing playable conditions that are second to none. Secondly, to work together as one cohesive unit under the direction of the Western Canada Turfgrass Association, to make the public, government (at all levels), and all of our partners aware that we are responsible, progressive and a proactive organization of people who continue to build and grow all activities that take place on around turfgrass – from parks for walking to sportsfields for playing to golf courses; we have a responsibility to many Canadians to provide healthy, positive atmospheres for them to enjoy their choosen activities.
