Short Life Bio

Grew up in Okriftel, Germany where I started playing soccer at age 3. Started playing in local Academy Developmental School before moving to Tulsa Oklahoma at age 10 and playing for competitive club teams, high school, Division I college, and now still in local indoor and outdoor leagues. I have a huge passion for the game and motivating players to achieve their goals, while teaching them fundamental life skills such as team work, professional, and striving to be successful. I believe the key to being successful as a player is being in the right developmental environment, both on and off the field. If a player is in a club whose main focus is development then they will be successful and everything else like winning will take care of itself.
