My goal is to teach the importance of teamwork

Coaching has been an outlet for me to help relay my knowledge and experiences to youth athletes aspiring to achieve their own goals on and off the court. Since I strongly believe that sports have the ability to provide us with attributes that we can use in our everyday lives, my goal and focus as a coach is to not only provide a fun and enjoyable atmosphere to learn but to also teach the importance of teamwork and a solid work ethic.
Basketball has been especially important to me since it is where I developed lifelong skills that have helped me get to where I am today. I first started playing basketball when I was growing up in San Diego. In high school, I was a 3-year varsity basketball starter at Torrey Pines High School, while also lettering in 2 other sports. Despite my strong passion for basketball, I ended up accepting a soccer scholarship to Saint Mary’s College of California where I learned valuable lessons in leadership and teamwork.
After graduation, my continued interest in basketball brought me back to the sport in the form of coaching. I ended up coaching 8th-grade boys and girls basketball at local middle schools in San Diego. I was also part of a club basketball program called Falcons Elite, where I coached a variety of teams between 4th-12th grade.
