Started to get degree in horticulture and switched to Business Admin. Horticulture is great but a limited degree. Took several turf grass courses from various places. Was well worth it too when working in the field.

High school drop out. Not proud of it and it has been a lot harder then if I had of finished school but I am not complaning now. I would like to go back to school and take something that has nothing to do with the type of work I do.
