Born and raised in Browns Point, Washington, I have been around soccer my entire life.   I grew up in a soccer family and within a soccer community that help developed my love for the game and the passion I have for coaching it.  Similar to the Auburn RVS organization, my goal in coaching is to develop players both in soccer and in their lives off the field.

I am a huge believer in community, which is why I live and work in Auburn and am very involved with coaching in Auburn.

COACHING HISTORY
I have been coaching since 2009 with experience ranging from micro to premier club level soccer.  Since 2015, I have coached both boys and girls ranging from ages 6-12 within the junior academy program in the Slammers organization.

PLAYING EXPERIENCE
I started playing soccer at the age of three and still continue to play to this day.  I played my entire club-career for the Norpoint Soccer Club in Tacoma, WA.  I also played four years of varsity soccer at Stadium High School.  While I have played a lot of soccer, my proudest accomplishments are:
•. Playing oversees in tournaments like the Gothia Cup and Dana Cup while representing Washington Youth Soccer in the “Soccer across Boarders” program.
•. Playing on the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) team.

REFEREE EXPERIENCE
To better understand the rules of the game and to continue my growth as a player within the soccer community I became a certified referee in 1995.  I refereed most levels of soccer until 1999.

COACHING HIGHLIGHTS
While teams that I have coached have won several tournaments, my proudest coaching highlights are when kids are learning the game, respecting the game and having fun playing the game.
