Why do you coach?

Soccer is my passion and I have loved playing for the past 25 years. Now I enjoy teaching kids and sharing that passion with the next generation.

Why Alaska Rush?
I started with Goldstrikers 24 years ago. That club became Rush towards the end of my playing career so its home for me.

Other than coaching, what do you enjoy doing?
I enjoy going on vacation and spending time with my family.
