Being born and raised in the Bay Area, I have a great appreciation for what this area has to offer to kids wanting to play soccer. I grew up playing for Central Valley and played my high school soccer at Westmont High School. I was lucky enough to pursue my dream of playing college soccer at San Jose State. While I knew professional soccer was not in the cards for me, coaching and teaching was my calling. I have been a special education teacher at Westmont high school for the last nine years. Along with this I have pursued my coaching career as well. I have coached the boys varsity soccer programs at both Leigh and Westmont along with the girls varsity team at Westmont. I have coached club soccer at many different clubs dating back to 2008 and I am excited to begin this adventure with South Bay FC. I hold NSCAA advanced regional coaching licenses. I love what this club stands for I come from a career where I loved the game of soccer but I let myself experience more. The balance I maintained in my life growing up kept me motivated to love the game and I feel that SBFC wants their players to achieve this balance.
I live in South San Jose with my beautiful wife Missy and my son Logan who is five and my daughter Emmy who is 3. In my spare time I love riding bikes with my family and watching any soccer that come on TV.
