My volleyball career started when I was a sophomore in College where I played 2 years for the Howard Payne Yellow Jackets Men’s Team 1996-98, as a Defensive Specialist I saw the court often. Our team ranked 17th in the nation for NIRSA Club Division. We played every major college in Texas and finished Top 20 at Nationals held by The University of Arizona. Since then I have competed in the GCVA beach league from 1998-2000.  

My Coaching career started as Assistant Varsity Coach at Second Baptist School in Houston 2008-2009.  Then after moving away for family business and coming back in 2014. I have been coaching 7A volleyball in Pearland ISD the past 3 seasons.  My passion is coaching and shaping young players to not just achieve their potential, but discover what talents they don’t realize they already have.
