I reside in Grain Valley, MO, where I coach, train and develop athletes of all ages and levels of their sport. My specialty is baseball and more specific the art of pitching. I grew up in the City of West Sacramento, California. Where through my experiences at a young age, fell in love with the game of baseball. I started playing baseball at 9 years old and couldn't get enough. At the age of 16 I played for the American Legion team and continued for the next few years. I enjoyed playing three sports in High School. Ensuing high School, I played for Cosumnes River College in Sacramento, CA, having excellent coaches who showed me how to take my athleticism to the next level. During several up and down years of traveling and trying to get picked up professionally I chose to finish my collegiate career at Avila University in Kansas City, MO as a scholarship athlete. After my collegiate career I traveled to Sioux Falls, SD to continue my playing with the Canaries in the Northern League. I was met with adversity as my arm became tired and was in constant pain. Personally I knew I had to make a change. Fortunate for me, I had just married and felt it was time to move on and begin my coaching career. I soon found out that being a professional ballplayer and being a professional coach are two separate worlds. I work hard to be my best for the many players I impact. I coach and train with love, compassion and desire. I stay active and present my athletic prowess in various sporting events still to this day. You can catch me on the field most weekend playing or coaching in the Midwest.
