I have been a Washington resident for 30+ years and have had a ball at my feet since I was three years old.
I played for Eastside FC from 10-18 years of age (1995 – 2004) I started on the White team and then was promoted to the Red team. I attended and played for Issaquah High School (2001 – 2004) where I was team Captain (2004) and voted 'Most Inspirational Player' by my teammates (2004). I went on to play at Edmonds Community College and then semi-professionally with the Seattle Wolves.
I have learned many valuable life lessons on the field, and I never forget it is my job to pass these lessons on to my players. I am so fortunate to be able to coach and mentor kids who come from the same area I grew up in. I love helping and pushing players to become the absolute best version of themselves possible.
I live in North Bend with my amazing wife Shay, our beautiful daughter Amelie, and our rambunctious dog Ollie. We love the Northwest and enjoy the many outdoor activities our region provides. We love supporting the Sounders and the US Men’s and Women’s teams. My family has been involved and invested in youth soccer in the area for over 30 years and will continue to do so for many years to come.
