Volleyball has played a significant part of my life over the years. I’ve had great opportunities to learn from the best as well as playing against high level players. Giving back to the next generation by sharing my knowledge and passion is the best gift I can give. I give 100% in everything I do and my hope that everyone recognizes that as I encounter them.  I also met my wife Hailey through playing volleyball.
