Why I coach for TKO Premier SC: As a kid growing up in Michigan who loved playing soccer, I respected the coaches that saw the best in each of us and challenged us to grow both in the game and personally. As a parent of 3 boys who are playing at various levels at TKO, it is important to me to be a part of a club that has the mission and coaching philosophy that align with my own beliefs. TKO is that club! The commitment the club shows to sportsmanship, teamwork, and learning life lessons from playing the game has inspired me to get more involved in the club and to help our young learn and grow through the game of soccer.

Fun fact about me: Up until April 2020 I actually had hair! I like to find ways to change and improve my fitness and recently ran my fastest 1 mile and 5k of my life.
