Over twenty-three years of coaching club - and 19 years of coaching high school soccer. I have coached all levels from bronze to premier both boys and girls, from U9 to U19. It has been my honor to negotiate over 350 college scholarships for players to Division I, II, III and NAIA level colleges across the country. I have been the program director for two separate clubs and camp director for several different soccer clubs across the state of California.


I have had the privilege of winning several prestigious soccer competitions throughout the country. They include the Disney College Showcase, Surf Cup, the California Regional League, the USYS National League, the SCNPL Southern California title, the Coast Soccer Premier League, as well as all other brackets of the Coast Soccer League from bronze to Gold. I currently have three soccer players playing professionally at the highest levels in this country, as well as developing players for various national teams.

As a coach, I have the responsibility to maintain and enhance self-esteem. I will constantly stop to consider how my decisions will influence people. I will listen and respond with empathy, encourage involvement, share thoughts, feelings, and rationale and provide support without removing responsibility.
