About this pro

As a competitive tennis player and part-time coach for over twenty years I have learned how to adjust my lessons to the client's needs.  Whether it be an emphasis on personal fitness or a desire to compete and win, I excel in instilling a basic understanding of the sport and its principals as well as promoting fun and exercise.  I have achieved personal goals of becoming the number one ranked USTA Mens tennis player in the state of Florida for multiple divisions, and have professional certifications sanctioned by the United States Professional Tennis Association and the Professional Tennis Registry.  Beginner to Intermediate Adults, and Juniors are the groups I have the most experience in teaching.

Tennis is my favorite sport and passtime activity. There are so many aspects of the sport I enjoy, including: physics, physicality, mental focus, and camaraderie that make it special to me.
