Former professional player for FK Gradina Bosnia and Houston Hotshots. I started coaching in 1997 at Houston Express. In 2013, I completed a workshop in England with U.S. Soccer where I spent time studying the top English Premier League professional academies. I also had the privilege of attending the Nike workshops at FC Barcelona’s famed La Masia and Español in Spain to study their youth player development models.
