I am an experienced soccer coach who came to LA Galaxy San Diego after relocating from Texas in 2016 where I coached in the ECNL for nationally recognized programs Dallas Sting SC and D’Feeters SC, and won the 2008 USYS National Championship with Andromeda SC. Additional coaching accomplishments include a 5th Place Finish at the 2013 ECNL National Finals, multiple State and Premier League Championships, Region III USYS Champions, and many other prestigious tournament championships.

I believe in developing each player to be the best they can be while utilizing their strengths to benefit the team. My goal is help each player reach their maximum potential in order to maximize college, national team program and professional playing opportunities.
