As a youth player, I began playing soccer in Okinawa, Japan before moving and playing in Maryland, Washington and Florida. After graduating high school in Florida, I moved on to play collegiate soccer at Liberty University and then for 3 years as a professional in Norway for Skeid SK, Finland for RoPS and in the US for the Wilmington Hammerheads and briefly for the Houston Dynamo as a reserve player. I began coaching in 2009 in San Antonio, TX for what became Lonestar SC San Antonio and is now SA City SC before joining St Louis Scott Gallagher as a Development Academy Coach for 4 years. In May of 2019, I joined RISE as the Boys DA Director.

Why are you excited about Rise SC? My passion for soccer and player development aligns with RISE SC. With the quality of our facilities and staff, we have the potential to separate ourselves as the best player developers in the city of Houston and across the country!
