"Why do I coach soccer? Simply put, I want to see change. Positive change in player's lives and positive change in the sport itself. If one player's life is changed in a good way by our soccer coaching, then it is all worth it. All the planning, sleepless nights, and long days on the soccer field ...
100% worth it."
FOUNDER & DIRECTOR OF PLAYER DEVELOPMENT
Growing up in Columbus, Ohio, I fell in love with the game of soccer from an early age. While growing up, I was always that "training player"; that weird teammate who enjoyed practice more than games. There was just something about learning new techniques and styles of soccer appealed to me.
Fast forward to my early twenties, and my serious playing career was cut short from an injury. I believe all things happen for a reason, and I began to embrace my calling to be a coach and mentor. My ambition quickly became aiming to help other soccer players learn more about themselves through soccer.
I believe that soccer can be a tool to teach life, and the lessons from it can help young athletes develop into successful leaders, in sport and in life.
For the past decade, coaching professional soccer has been my professional endeavor. I have also been blessed to have the opportunity to build relationships with thousands of talented players, teams, and clubs in the central Ohio area.
I have the incredible opportunity to coach both individuals and teams in addition to high school and club programs. I've also had the incredible opportunity to work (and form friendships) with many different soccer coaches and programs all over the world, including LaLiga, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, and many more.
Simply put, soccer is my passion and the education channel that I use to help young players learn their place in life; both on and off the soccer field.
