What is your favorite thing about coaching soccer?
Player and Team development. Most coaches see the team mostly I love seeing the team as individuals and helping each individual improve.

What teams do you support?
I am a homer so Sounders and US National Teams.

Do you have any hidden non-soccer talents or abilities?
No, just love all sports but mainly soccer and played high level racquetball.

What is your coaching philosophy?
Kids need to grow and develop but soccer is a game and must be FUN! I believe in possession style of play but allow for player creativity within that. My teams also play a very aggressive style of pressure cover higher up the field defending every inch of ground.
