Coaching Philosophy: Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.

Best Volleyball Moment: Finishing second in the state my senior year of high school

My Life in Sports: I mainly played baseball through high school and college. I was recruited by my JV baseball coach freshman year of high school to tryout for the volleyball team, and the rest is history. I still dedicated the majority of my time to baseball and continued to play collegiately at Christopher Newport University. In the off-season I played on the men’s club volleyball team since CNU does not have a varsity men’s team. Upon graduation I took on a brief coaching stint as the 15-2 head coach at Evolution volleyball club in 2019. More recently I was one of the volunteer assistant coaches for the Marymount University women’s team during their 2021 season.

When I’m not coaching volleyball: I am a huge fitness and nutrition junkie and spend a lot of my free time in the gym or learning more about the science behind working out and proper dieting. I also enjoy hunting waterfowl and snowboarding.

Last Book I Read: Can’t Hurt Me – David Goggins

Favorite Quote: “Without memories of the past, the future means so little.”

Something You Probably Don’t Know About Me: Was a part of my school’s band for 7 years through middle and high school.
