Been in the golf business since 1991 when I co-founded Golfing International Inc., the publishers of "Par Excellence", Canada’s first mail order and e-commerce golf catalogue company. In that time we won two RSVP Awards from the Canadian Marketing Association for 'Catalogue Design and Response' and was featured in a nationally televised documentary by CBC Venture.
In 2002 I started traveling to China and subsequently became the supplier of Mike Weir’s WeirGolf licensed merchandise for Sears Canada and fulfilment company for WeirGolf’s online sales.
In 2006, I co-founded and consulted on www.travelinggolfer.net, Canada's first online website of golf travel related stories and transformed it into a 45,000 subscriber base for their monthly newsletter.
I am currently a member of the Golf Journalists Association of Canada, Golf Travel Writers of America, International Golf Travel Writers Association and Travel Media Association of Canada. I have golfed in 9 Canadian provinces, 20 US States and 23 countries. My articles and photographs have recently been featured in a number of publications including Top 100 Golf Courses of the World, Leading Courses, Travel Life Magazine, Doctor's Review, Tee Times Minnesota, Chicago District Golfer and Golf Oklahoma Magazines.
I am a three time award winner in the “Best Photograph” category and one for "Travel Feature" category from the Golf Journalist Association of Canada. In 2016 won in the "Best Photo Series" for TMAC.
