During my tenure at Indiana-Purdue, Fort Wayne, I played NCAA Men’s Division I Volleyball. I had the privilege of playing in two Men’s Final Four Championships. My coach Arnie Ball and my teammates taught me many life lessons that I still carry with me in my day-to-day life and as a volleyball coach. At IPFW, I was able to compete and had the opportunity to play professional volleyball in Belgium. I continued to learn and study not only my sport, but the entire sporting world. I've coached Club Volleyball in Michigan, Indiana and Tampa. 1996 - Present. My main mission is to HELP athletes understand the game of volleyball. The motion and movement of the player is paramount in their advancement. The various journeys I’ve experienced in my athletic career have helped me to understand the importance of fostering your craft. We grow from our challenges and master our craft along the way.
