My earliest mentor was Bert Frederick, longtime Superintendent at Vesper Country Club. He said that I had a knack for the business and should pursue it.

What is your favorite part of the job, or least favorite?

My favorite part of the job is being outside on a warm morning and watching the sunrise. My least favorite is managing personnel.

Do you collect anything? Hub caps, license plates, signs…
