I was born and raised in West Bend, Wisconsin.  I graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Stout with a degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management.  I spent 11 years in the Hotel industry with Wyndham Hotels and Resorts in several cities including Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, Kansas City and San Diego and was GM at 4 different full service hotels. 

I joined Club Corp in July of 2002.  For 4 years I was Resident Manager of Columbia Tower Club in Seattle, WA, then General Manager of  La Cima Club in Irving TX for 4 years and I have been the General Manager of the Metropolitan Club since 2009.  Recent Non Profit Boards I have served on include Board Chairman of the Irving Symphony Orchestra, the Greater Irving Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and currently a leader at our church’s Awana Children’s Ministry and the Missions Committee Chairman.

I have 4 children, Adam, 22 who works for Microsoft, Ethan 8, Will 6 and Matthew 4.  I have a beautiful wife of 12 years, Ruth.  Personal interests include biking, cooking, wine, reading and I do an occasional triathlon.
