Former USL professional player 2005-2007. Former Houston Texans Soccer Club player from 2001 -2005. Graduated from University of Houston in 2009 with a Bachelors Sports Science Degree. I started coaching in 2007 on returning to Houston after a short stint in the USL. I have been coaching in Houston for 13 years and have spent 7 of those years coaching in the Development Academy. I was accepted to the first class of the new reformatted A license and received my A license in 2017.

I was very excited to join RISE SC as they have the same developmental beliefs that benefit each individual player. We share the same values and insights into player development.
