Soccer Background– I have coached competitive youth soccer for 20 years after playing collegiately at Westmont College in Santa Barbara. I currently coach the Arsenal Premier ’98 and will be assisting with the u-16 girls (’01 birth year) next year.  My first 16 years coaching were on the professional staff at the Sereno Soccer Club where I coached the 83 boys, 84 boys, 86 boys, 91 boys, 94 boys, 94 girls, 96 girls, 98 girls, and 01 girls. I have been head coach of 12 state champion teams, 1 regional finalist, and 5 five regional semi-finalists. Other tournament success has included championships at the President’s Day tournament (9 times) and Cerritos Memorial Classic (5 times). Surf Cup finalist (3 times) and Blues Cup finalist. I also coached Scottsdale Christian Academy to a state championship and have been an Olympic Development coach for Arizona for five years. I have been a physical therapist and national strength and conditioning specialist for 14 years. I am the co-owner and director of the Foothills Sports Medicine location in the Gilbert-Mesa area and direct the Arizona Arsenal Sports Medicine Team. I have a beautiful wife and three amazing young girls. I enjoy golfing and weight training and compete in amateur bodybuilding competitions. I love developing players and reaching a new competitive level with my teams. I also have a passion for injury prevention and rehabilitation in the soccer players and will incorporate a female specific injury prevention program for the Arsenal players.
