I grew up playing volleyball in Southern California and was a setter in high school (yes, high schools have boys volleyball). Had some great coaches and some not so great coaches. I learned from each of them. Through it all I absolutely loved being on the court. As a setter I loved leading and also serving the team. I also love the teamwork, the constant working to improve, the balance between strength and control, trying to outsmart your opponent, the frustration of momentum swings and the joy of beating an intimidating team. Loved it all. As my kids started playing sports I began coaching. Started with Tee-ball and soccer then introduced them to Volleyball. I remember being intimidated as I attended my first coaches training. Nadia taught me how to use the keys and principles of the game. Use them I’ve really enjoyed helping each athlete build confidence and improve. After 11 seasons of recreation league Volleyball, I’m looking forward to coaching club. I also strive to use sports as vehicle to teach life lessons as well. (Teamwork, positivity, self improvement, grace, sacrifice, etc). Attending the 3 day coaches training that is put on by Gold Metal Squared really shapes my style as well. By day I lead the Private Bank of a regional bank in Oregon and SW Washington. I have a wife of 19 years and 4 kids.
