I was introduced to lacrosse in high school and fell in love with the sport. However, growing up in Miami, it was not exactly the hot bed of lacrosse growth it is today and I did not become active again in the sport until my children showed a spark for the game. I have coached lacrosse at Wheeler Jr for the past 4 years across our age groups and have a level 1 Certification through USA lacrosse. My goal as a coach is to create fun, high energy learning experiences so that our children develop a lifelong love of the game. Additionally, I believe the Wheeler Jr program is special because it has an opportunity to introduce the game to kids who previously would not have been exposed to lacrosse.
Before my career as a tech entrepreneur, I spent a number of years in the military and was a Special Forces officer (Green Beret). Those experiences heavily influence my coaching and I focus on intelligently developing fitness, mastering the basics, and being great teammates.
I have three children who all love lacrosse: my daughter plays for the Wheeler High School team and two boys play for Wheeler Jr.
