My Biography

2014-15 is my second year as the assistant softball coach for Glendale Community College. I've been coaching fast-pitch softball at the club, high school, and collegiate level for more than 13 years. A graduate of St. Mary’s High School and Glendale Community College, I played football, then became a loyal fire fighter of the City of Phoenix where I received Fireman of the Year and became Captain of the Phoenix Fire Department.

In 2000, I began head coaching the Arizona Suncats travel ball team, earning several top 20 finishes in the ASA nationals, including the 2004 runner-up finish in the 16U Nationals (in which Trisha Thurston played). I've also coached my daughters to successful softball careers at GCC and the University of Kentucky. In addition to the Arizona Suncats, I've assisted at Greenway High School including their 4A Division II Championship and Runner-Up seasons in 2008 and 2009. Currently my family and I live in the Glendale area.
