I started in the industry in 2004 at Gohlke Pools in Denton, TX, at age 16. I began a summer internship in 2006 with Claffey Pools while attending Oklahoma State University. Upon graduating in Spring of 2011 with a degree in Landscape Architecture, I began working full time in the design/sales department. I currently live in Lantana with my wife Rachel and our son Karsten. Since 2013, I have received 12 design awards for projects between APSP & Master Pools Guild and have had projects published on various websites & magazines.
