About Coach

I have been an athlete all my life, playing soccer, tennis, rugby and track and field in high school. Soccer has always been my passion and I started to specialise in it by the age of 16, playing for pro academies in England. At senior level playing semi pro. At 19 I came over to play soccer and college level and finished my playing career at UMSL in 2021, finishing with a stand out year making play offs and being name second team all conference. During this time , athletic performance coaching has had a big impact on me through some good stuff that I did but also bad stuff that regressed me or even got me hurt. I started interning in collegiate athletics. I have already spent a semester working with UMSL, a semester working with Lindenwood S&C and finally SIUE S&C. Having such exposure has made me crave wanting to help young athletes reach their full athletic potential.

Turning Point

I have always been really competitive, so sport attracted me naturally. I moved to a new country at the age of 9 where I didn’t speak the language and soccer was my one go to where people had a universal language. It got me through some tough times but also led me to injuries. Through injuries I wanted to do my best to make sure no one else goes through what I had to. That is why I want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to play their favourite sport and reach their full potential at it.

Motivation & Passion

My purpose is to show athletes what they’re capable of. Some of us need an extra push, some need an idea and others need guidance. I want to be the person that makes the difference for these athletes to get further in sport, be it through attitude or physical ability. I have been subject to potentially not reaching the level that I should have due to not being tall enough etc, so I want to make sure that everything I had to make up for that, someone can use, to get to the level I never reached. Too many of us have a lot of hidden potential and for me, the passion is finding that hidden potential.
