Biography: 

Originally from north Houston, TX, I grew up playing soccer since the age of 6 and played competitively until I went to college. Played predominantly defense (Goalkeeper and fullback) in Division 1 for the Classics, Hurricanes, and Texans winning various titles including regionals at U14. Also played for Klein High School class of 2001.

Soccer is a great tool to learn life lessons and develop youth in their formative years. My philosophy is to improve each player individually as well as learning roles for each position within the team. Establishing a strong work ethic while maintaining a fun atmosphere for the players is my main goal. Using soccer to educate and prepare players to work with others as well as set goals and work towards them (both on the field and off). Teaching youth to learn from their mistakes, be good sportsmen in wins or losses, and raise confidence in themselves. Not only learning from the coach, but problem solving and reaching conclusions for themselves is important.
