I have played competitive soccer locally since 2004 with Eclipse, Albion, and Houston Express and I was also a referee. After my club playing days, I moved on to play collegiately at University of Texas at Tyler. I think playing and refereeing background led me to coaching. I always loved to compete as a player, but I also really enjoyed refereeing because of the different perspective it provided me. I feel like it helped me build a better overall understanding of the game. As a player, I would try to emulate players that I looked up to. As a coach, I do the same thing. I study Pep Guardiola closely because his coaching style and the way his teams play appeal to me. I hope to motivate players by helping them build a solid technical foundation that will allow them to express their creativity.
