About this pro

As a current professional 100m/400m hurdler/sprinter training with one of the world's best coach and athletes, I have a champion mindset. 
Along with the importance of physicality, like most coaches don't, I incorporate mindfulness into each session. This helps tap into the mental toughness that is vital in the sport of Track & Field. 
I am currently 13 years into my career of track. 2 years of professional track for Athletics Australia. 
I ran all 4 years on an athletic scholarship at San Diego State University where I won a conference championship in the 400m hurdles which took me to NCAA.

Seeing an athlete of mine improve in whatever way that makes them happy is what brings me joy. I want all my athletes to first and far most, enjoy what they are doing and have fun.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Depending on where they are at in their athletic career, I would take it slow to assess all areas of weakness and strengths. As we become more comfortable with each other (coaching style and technique of the student) sessions will become more technical. Working on technical weaknesses, strengthen, drills & plyomentrics, and continue to build off what has been accomplished. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have my level 1 coaching certification as well as been privately coaching for 2 years. I have also coached at high school level. 
I am currently training for the Olympics along side Allyson Felix under the coaching of Bobby Kersee. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I'm flexible on pricing with the right person. My sessions usually run for $50/hr. 


How did you get started teaching?

A coach of mine year back recommended I start coaching a kid he had and I found a passion for helping out people reach their athletic dreams. I've done a few freelance private physical therapy sessions and I enjoy seeing people accomplish their goals. 


What types of students have you worked with?

Kids as young as 10 up to college level (18-22). 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I waa privately coaching this girl who had no experience in track other than being fast. She competed in her first meet and ended up winning that meet. I was so beyond happy to see that glimmer in her eye that she was proud of herself. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Do your research! Make sure that your coach knows the sport and techniques. Running is such a technical sport and if they don't know the proper body mechanics, there's a chance you could get injured. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think of what your goals are. What do you want to accomplish. Think small like winning your next race or getting your time down a second. Little things like that can help the coach find specific ways to work on your goal to get to it as quickly and efficiently as possible.
