I have been involved in the sport of volleyball for 30 years, either playing or coaching. I started playing at the University of Oregon playing on the club team. I continued to play semi-pro beach volleyball on the beaches of Florida and occasionally in competitive men’s tournaments in the area. I moved back to Portland and started coaching high school volleyball at Clackamas and then moved over to West Linn ending my high school coaching career with state championship. I started my coaching club career with Mt. Hood and PVC volleyball club’s and for the past 6 years I have been coaching Ajax boys’ volleyball either at the 16 or 14u level. Highlights with Ajax include playing in the championship 16u match at the Border Smackdown tournament and leading the boy’s power league in points for both 16 and 14u teams and I look forward to continuing to grow the boys’ volleyball in the Pacific Northwest.
