Tell us about your soccer career.
professional soccer player in Philadelphia and an experienced coach of all ages. I'm in my second year of professional soccer and I played four years of D1 college soccer.
Why did you decide to become a private coach?
It’s a good opportunity to help kids out around my area. I want to teach them what I did to get to where I am.
What do you enjoy most about coaching?
I like the personal relationship I get with players. It’s more than just player- coach. Knowing players off the field creates a better experience on the field.
What can a client expect from private lessons with you?
I’m primarily an offensive player, so you can expect a lot of offensive work and ball work. I focus mainly on the offensive part of the game.
Who is your favorite coach and why?
I had one coach who was my youth coach all the way until college. Coach Stoyan was my favorite coach for 10 years.
