Personal Statement:

Youngest son of 11 children, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  I love having a good time and being around positive people.  I enjoy helping young adults become both better players, and better people, as my coaches did for me when I was growing up.  When not playing or coaching soccer, I’m a member of the Seattle Grizzlies Australian Rules Football team (though you can call it “Footy” for short).  In my first season with the Grizz I was named Rookie of the Year and team MVP aka “The Ichiro” and helped our club to a 4th place national finish.  And finally, if you ask those that truly know me best, they’ll say that I’ve been known to play a video game or two in my day.

Emerald City FC exists to develop each of our players to his or her fullest potential, competing at the highest possible level while demonstrating exemplary teamwork, sportsmanship, and a passion for the game.
