BRIEF DESCRIPTION ABOUT YOURSELF: I am a San Diego native who attended Mira Mesa high school. Playing and coaching have always been my passion. Playing has been amazing, but I have found that coaching kids are a far more exciting satisfaction. I hope to help kids grow in life and learn from me on and off the field.
