From the time I was very little I dreamed of being able to play college football. I was fortunate enough to do so for 2 years at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Now that I work for NCSA, I have the unique opportunity to help young athletes accomplish the same goal of playing collegiately that I had set myself. This is absolutely my favorite part of working for NCSA because I get to help change someone’s life for the better each and everyday by helping them find the perfect athletic and academic fit in their college search.

Another great thing that NCSA has given me the opportunity to experience is being able to work and speak with like-minded sport lovers. Genuinely, it is a joy to come to work everyday and be a part of that environment and make an impact on a young athletes life. Prior to working for NCSA, as I mentioned above, I played Outside Linebacker and some Strong Safety for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I also coached Girls Fastpitch Travel Softball for a few years with the Connecticut Titans and my high school athletic career was spent in Bristol, CT at Bristol Eastern High School. Go Lancers!

In my off time, I am spending time with my amazing wife Emily, 2 young boys Harvey and Everett and our dog Josey. I’m proud to say that we live in a very active city and get to enjoy many events the great city of Chattanooga, TN hosts. I can also be found on many of Chattanooga’s river banks fishing or hiking in some of the most beautiful trails and views this country has to offer.
