In High School, I was one of the most decorated NYSPHAA student athletes and the youngest athlete to qualify and place in the top 10 as a 7th Grader in New York State. I was a 2x State Champion and 2x Runner up. I was highly recruited coming out of High School as a top 25 recruit. I decided to stay close to home, where I went on to captain the swimming and diving team at Niagara University. While at Niagara, I received the MAAC Conference Most Outstanding Male Diver for the 2009, 2011, and 2012 seasons. I was also the ECAC Most Outstanding Male Diver in 2009 and 2011.

After graduation, I still felt I had more in the tank so I moved out to Indiana where I made a run for 2016 Olympic Trials. As a Senior National Elite Level diver, I competed extensively on the National Circuit on all disciplines including Men’s 1m, 3m, synchro and platform events respectfully. I was even casted to be a high diver on the Royal Caribbean at one point.

I have extensive experience coaching at various camps, clinics, and workshops throughout the United States and was a clinician at the 2016 US Olympic Trials. I was awarded the MAAC Diving Coach of the Year in 2014, 2016, and 2017. I also served as an assistant coach both for Purdue and the University of Arkansas. I have had the opportunity to work alongside and train with some the greatest minds in the sport.

In addition to my role as a recruiting coach, I am a frequent traveler and wellness ambassador. I love trying new things and meeting new people.
