As a kid, I had always dreamed of playing college hockey. I am originally from Marquette, Michigan but now live in Long Island, New York. Even though the Upper Peninsula of Michigan has a very strong hockey tradition, I was not sure how the recruiting process worked.

I played hockey and graduated from NCAA DIII Finlandia University. I then went on and earned my MBA from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. After graduation, I immediately got into coaching because I wanted to give back to the game that has given me so much.

I have been fortunate to have coached junior hockey all over the United States. I have guided 9 teams to compete at the National Championship and have captured three league championships. In addition to working at NCSA, I currently serve as the Head Coach for the New York Aviators in the USPHL.

The best part of working for NCSA is being able to help guide student-athletes through the recruiting process and working with them toward their college commitment.
