Personal Summary

I have coached four years at the high school level, as well as six years at the club level and finally making the move to coaching at the collegiate level for DePauw University for three years.  Many of the experiences that I have come across came from the fifteen years of swimming competitively, my years as a high school swimmer, and for my years as a collegiate athlete in swimming and water polo.

Throughout my years as an athlete, I have been able to experience many different styles of coaching, techniques and understanding of new ways to teach certain strokes.  I have had the pleasure of working with many different coaching styles as well as coaches who have brought a new way in looking at the sport.  Through my prior experience as a teammate and as an assistant coach, I have learned many lessons and techniques that have helped me be an excellent and proficient coach - all of which I employ in my coaching duties today. Among others these include teaching proper stroke technique, instilling a winning work ethic, running drills to maximize conditioning, helping maintain a healthy mental attitude and explaining race strategies for many of the events.
