Personal Summary

Former member of the CAL men's swim team (2011-2016).

2x American Record Holder, 5x NCAA Div I National Champion, 2x NCAA Div I National Team Champion, 15x NCAA All-American, and was on USA National teams (2009-2011).

Over the past 4 years I have served as the National Group Assistant Coach and the Senior Group Lead Coach at Scottsdale Aquatic Club.

This past August I was given the reigns Senior Group. Through mindful healthy program of individual personal development, mental health practices, overall athlete development all while making each individual feel 'seen' and welcomed, the group grew from a roster size of 16 in August, to 45+ by the end of March.

I did not have the best experience in my swimming career which also spilled over into my overall development as a human being; this was much in part to a coach I had in my life.

To which my driving force in why I do what I do is:

"I never want an athlete to feel the way I felt growing up".
