Growing up in Buffalo, NY, hockey has always been a passion of mine since I was little. Through our great game and the support of my parents and hard work I was fortunate to further my career into junior hockey before achieving my goal of playing NCAA hockey at Saint Anselm College. From there, I transferred to the University of Findlay and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Business Management and Marketing. Following graduation, I achieved another goal of playing professionally in the SPHL.

While in college at Findlay, I began to train players and was an assistant coach for Little Caesars AAA and the Toledo IceDiggers of the NAHL. It was then that I found my love of coaching and the desire to help student athletes achieve their career goals of attending college, playing college hockey and earning a degree they can use for the rest of their lives.

Since 2007 I have been a full time coach and scout in various leagues including the BCHL, NAHL and USPHL. Presently I am a head coach in the USPHL in addition to being a hockey recruiter. I decided to join the NCSA family because there was not a service of this kind that offered a pathway of support when I was looking to attend a college and I want to help. As a parent myself I understand the challenges that are ahead for your student athletes and family alike and I look forward to helping you navigate the twists and turns.
