When I started playing the game of golf at the age of 4, I was instantly hooked. I continued to play throughout my youth and was a dedicated player in the First Tee of Miami program for the majority of my early life.
Upon graduating from high school, I earned a full scholarship to play golf as a knight at the University of Central Florida. I was a valuable member of the golf team at UCF for 3 years and was fortunate to gain a lot of great experiences playing all around the world.
After my third year playing for the UCF golf team, I turned pro in the fall of 2010 and began my professional golf career. I continued to play professionally and played full time in 2013 on the PGA Latinoamerica Tour.
I was very fortunate during the tour and decided to take the skills and knowledge I learned during my time out of the country, and put them to use in my hometown of Miami. In 2014, I joined the professionals at International Links and the First Tee of Miami where I am able to put my expertise to work everyday. I am also currently in the PGA Apprentice Program as well as a Level 3 First Tee Coach. With the experiences and knowledge I’ve gained throughout my life and through the game of golf, I feel I can reach a wide variety of people of all ages and levels to help them achieve their goals in and out of golf.
