Current Team(s):  USA Premier 99 boys and girls and USA Premier 05 boys.  I am also an assistant coach with Bingham High School boys.       


Coaching Experience:  20+ years.  Recreation to competition.  Girls and boys.  I've coached high school, run college ID camps, trained academy, been on ODP staff and everything in between.   


Playing Experience:  Youth club and high school ball in Colorado.  Youth and U23 Men's ODP/Select.  4 years at Westminster College of Salt Lake City earning All Conference and All District honors.  Currently ranked 5th all-time in games played for Westminster College (1989 - 92)

Favorite Soccer Player:  Lionel Messi, Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and any of the boys and girls that play(ed) for me.  I grew up idolizing Roberto Baggio, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit, Zizu Zidane and Karl Heinz Rummenigge.     


Most Memorable Soccer Experience(s):  My life has been blessed by many wonderful soccer experiences.  From traveling as a youth player, my college days, coaching, the championships and titles won, the trophies, the camaraderie, the personalities, the unbelievable victories, and of course the heart-wrenching defeats.  Embracing these moments with my current teams is what makes it all worthwhile.  


Coaching Philosophy:  At a young age, winning is not the most important thing.  The important thing is to develop creative, skilled players with good confidence.  Encourage freedom of expression without fear of failure.  Emphasis on playing well over results and foster lasting passion for this game we love so much.


Favorite Movie:  Star Wars (whose isn't?)   


Favorite Food:  Italian.  Mexican.  Good ol' steak and potatoes.


Special Interests:  Reading.  Traveling.  Spending any precious free time with my family.   


Coach Says:  "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard."   "Don't be upset by the result you didn't get with the work you didn't do."
