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.
