Thank you for taking the time to get to know me.
I was raised in a small mid western town located in northeast Indiana.
I was a very active child and loved all sports growing up.
In high school, I lettered 11 times in 3 varsity sports (Cross Country, Basketball, Track & Field).
I made an early verbal commitment my junior year in high school to attend Ball State University and run on the varsity Cross Country and Track & Field teams. During my high school senior season, it was announced that Ball State was discontinuing their men’s Cross Country and Track & Field programs. I decided to walk-on at Indiana State University and attended their school for a year.
It wasn’t until midway through my freshman year at Indiana State that I knew that my heart was somewhere else. I chose to transfer to Ball State University to pursue my Bachelor’s degree in Sports Administration with a minor in marketing.
After graduation, I fulfilled my degree with a semester long internship with Cal Ripken Baseball Academy in Aberdeen, Maryland. During my time with the Academy, I met some incredible people domestically and internationally. One in which put me in contact with the head coach for Cross Country and Track & Field at Towson University in Towson, Maryland.
I began coaching at Towson University as a volunteer assistant for Cross Country and Track & Field. Shortly thereafter, I was quickly promoted to a part-time coach and ultimately became the program’s first ever full-time assistant coach.
I spent eight incredible years coaching and mentoring the women distance runners at Towson University. Additionally, I recruited and provided customer service to prospective student athletes and their parents my entire time as an assistant at Towson University.
My wife, Vicki, is the current head coach for gymnastics at Towson University. We were married on December 31 st of 2016. Our passion is to motivate, encourage, and educate student-athletes through the love of sport.
