Coaching Philosophy: My goal is to provide a team environment in which everyone learns to love the sport, improves and finds success.
Best Volleyball Moment: My favorite moment of every season occurs when the team starts working as a team. Sometimes it’s in the 2nd week, sometimes in the 2nd month…but it’s great when it happens.
My Life in Sports: I was a varsity tennis and golfer at LaSalle College High School, achieving Philadelphia All-Catholic honors. As an adult I love to play tennis, ski the black diamonds, and ripstick with the kids in the driveway.
When I’m Not Coaching Volleyball… I’m devoting my time to my family, anything outside. My 9-5 is marketing for a large bank.
