About this pro

Over 15 years of coaching Baseball, Volleyball and Football - as well as playing at a high level - has prepared me to help you and/or your child, get better and have more fun playing the sport they love!

Team sports are not just about winning or losing, but about adding to the group dynamic. Improving skills, confidence and attitude will help prepare one for life in and beyond sports.

20+ years playing and coaching indoor and beach volleyball. 20+ years playing and coaching Baseball - multiple age groups and skill levels; Emphasis on pitching and fielding skills. College football player - focus on receiving, agility, speed work. 

I enjoy teaching the skills that make players successful, and have fun doing it! Laughter is as just important as sweat equity when teaching children and adults alike - watching my players improve, succeed and enjoy the games I grew up playing and now coaching, makes it all worthwhile! 

Sports at any age is about building confidence to succeed when challenged - spiking a ball past a libero, driving home the winning run, striking out the final batter, or catching a touchdown pass - and being an integral member of a team.
