New Jersey Boys Program Director

ABOUT ME

I began my lacrosse career just before high school at the age of 13.  I played 4 years of varsity lacrosse at Downingtown West graduating in 2008.  I went on to play 4 years of college lacrosse and completed my degree in Sports Management at York College.  After graduation I decided to pursue coaching college lacrosse full time making stops at York College, CCBC Essex, Marymount University, and St. Mary’s College of Maryland.  I moved to Monmouth County in 2018 and went on to become the assistant varsity coach at Christian Brothers Academy for the past 3 seasons.  With a decade of coaching at the collegiate, high school, and club level I have dedicated countless hours to grow athletes of all ages.

I began coaching for Mad Dog in May of 2019.  The coaches and the athletes have been amazing to work with this past year and a half.  As with any great program, there are a number of different methods to become successful, but one prerequisite for success that is not up for debate is a relentless dedication from the bottom, all the way up to the top.  The staff and athletes are addicted to getting better, making the environment on the fields and at the facility one that is conducive to growth.  I’m humbled to serve as the Director of Player Development and can not wait to help our athletes grow at a holistic level.
