About this pro

I have had a passion for tennis for over 20 years and there is nothing that I enjoy more than sharing that passion with my clients. And you WILL be a better and smarter tennis player with my instruction.

I am a USPTA and PTR certified tennis professional. I have been teaching players of all ages and skill levels for over fifteen years. I am a certified HUMAN PERFOMANCE INSTITUTE Mental Toughness Specialist. I have multiple certifications with the USPTA, PTR and the USTA. I have certification with the Sanchez/Casels Spanish School of Tennis. I have captained numerous USTA and Interclub adult teams. I also continue to compete in local league play. I am currently teaching at a local tennis facility.

There is nothing more enjoyable than that moment when watching a player execute a correct shot. Whether it is an eight year old suddenly hitting that perfect forehand or a middle age adult understanding the timing needed for a slice backhand there is nothing like that fantastic 'AH HA' moment by teacher and player.
