Why do you coach?

Soccer has taken me so many places from Alaska, Washington, California to New York and England. It has given me so many experinces in my life. I coach so I can give my lessons and experince back to the Alaskan players.

Why Alaska Rush?

The coaching staff. I think it’s the best group of coaches in the State. I also like the fact that Rush is a national club that can provide excellent opportunities for Alaskan players.

Other than coaching, what do you enjoy doing?

All the outdoor Alaskan activiites and playing soccer as well.
