I am excited to be a part of the UConn turfgrass team. While much of my time in the turfgrass industry has been spent in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, I welcome the opportunity to work with turfgrass professionals here in Connecticut. Being involved in the turfgrass seed industry for over 25 years has provided me with a varied resume of experiences in the turfgrass industry; particularly in the area of turfgrass selection.
As both a sales representative and agronomist in the turfgrass seed industry I was involved in development, evaluation and market introduction of numerous turfgrass cultivars. Over the years, I have worked with numerous superintendents, sports turf managers, sod producers and landscape professionals to develop and evaluate turfgrass seed mixtures that would best suit a specific site, need or circumstance.
