I have played soccer all my life, I came to American in 2009 on a soccer scholarship to NAIA outfit Grand View University Vikings. There I spent four years developing my skills playing for the Varsity team while coaching at a local elementary school, with the Scouts of America. During my playing time we were crowned conference champions 3 times, we made it through to the NAIA national tournament 3 times; reaching the quarter-finals twice. I personally scored 1 goal in the national tournament.
My coaching skills have been developed through playing experience under many prestigious coaches.
