I attended Glastonbury High School in Glastonbury, Connecticut, where I was a three sport athlete competing in football, baseball, and wrestling. I earned All-State honors in both football and wrestling but knew that I wanted to play football at the collegiate level.  I went on to study exercise science at McDaniel College (formerly Western Maryland College), led the program to four post season appearances and four Centennial Conference Championships.  I was a two time team captain (2001, 2002), All – American (2002), and the Centennial Conferences Defensive Player of the Year (2002). 

After my playing career, I spent five years coaching at the collegiate level serving as a strength and conditioning coach at the University of Maryland – College Park (2002), an assistant football coach at King’s College (2003), and the Special Teams Coordinator at McDaniel College (2003 – 2007). 

In 2007 I transitioned out of coaching the X’s and O’s of football and focused on serving others as a strength and conditioning coach. Helping people enhance their performance both on and off the field is something I am truly passionate about. 

Some of the most gratifying moments of my professional career have been helping people achieve their goals.  I joined NCSA as a Recruiting Coach in 2020 because I believe I can help guide families and student-athletes through the NCAA recruiting process.
