Current NPJ-Seattle Club Director, formerly Kent Juniors, and Head Coach of NPJ-Seattle 17's. Passion for coaching, love of volleyball, and drive to be great in learning every day.

I coached club for the past 26 year, last 14 years with Kent Juniors where I played a significant role of leading the program to great heights as one of the region's premier coaches. In addition to coaching at high levels in club, I coached the past 16 years with the USA Volleyball and 2018 I was the Head of Delegation for the Men's Junior National Team competing in Peru. For the past 5 years served as the Director of the PSR High Performance program and served as the Head Coach of the PSR Semi-Pro Team through its tenure. Traveling around the country with these programs allowed me to continue to increase my VB network and gain relationships with college coaches.

In my successful tenure I led teams to numerous regional championships, tournament wins and several earned bids to the national championships in all divisions. This success includes one championship win at the GJNC (Patriot Division). My love and knowledge of the game is infectious, and I love to share it with all those who are present in the gym with me. My preparation, practice structure, direct/honest feedback and game plans help every student-athlete strive to be better and gain the ability to compete at the next level.
