The impact of sports expands far beyond playing fields, courts, gyms, etc. The lessons I have learned throughout my successes and failures as an athlete, as a teammate, and as a leader is what has shaped who I am today. I am excited to be a part of CoachUp where we can create opportunities for so many athletes and coaches.
I am a former Sergeant in United States Marine Corps where I served on multiple combat deployments to Iraq. Since separating from service, I have worked in sports, most recently founding Athletes of Valor to give all military men and women a path to college sports after their service.
I am a lifelong geek from the North Shore of Massachusetts. I have been working as a web developer since I was a sophomore in high school in the late 90s. Almost a decade later, when the iPhone was first announced, I knew I had to start programming for the platform. I was jailbreaking and writing my own apps before it was allowed by Apple, and ever since the developer program has been available, I've been creating in-house apps for various companies. I also have a few of my own apps in the App Store. I run, bike, and climb, and each time I try to go faster, go farther, or do better than the last time I went out. Working at CoachUp lets me combine the things I am passionate about and has given me the opportunity to work with a great team.
Sports have been a huge part of my life ever since I started competing against my older brother, Matt, on the driveway basketball hoop. This love for sports evolved into playing baseball, soccer, basketball, and football throughout my childhood. Summer trips to watch Pedro at Fenway Park steered me in the direction of baseball and I went on to compete collegiately at Columbia University in New York City. My experience in athletics has helped me develop some excellent relationships with past coaches and I am grateful for the opportunity to facilitate similar experiences through CoachUp.
Now that my playing days are over, I am not only looking to help other coaches meet athletes on CoachUp’s Coach Engagement Team, but I have also started to coach myself, giving pitching lessons on the weekends. A native of North Andover, MA, I have also helped out with North Andover High’s fall ball baseball league. When not helping athletes achieve their goals on the field, you find find me with friends and family exploring Boston, or making the occasional trip back to NYC to watch my former teammates compete.
I am a father of 4, with two in college and and two in high school, all who have been involved in sports at one time or another. Using the CoachUp service for them has been a big plus!
I have always been involved in customer service at all points in my life beginning with 5 years in the credit card collections business, then graduating from the renowned Le Cordon Bleu culinary institute, having a 10 year career as an executive chef, and continuing on into a clothing company running the customer experience and marketing team. You could say that the customer experience is something I am passionate about and excited to bring to the CoachUp team!
I am a huge fan of sports, in particular soccer and cycling. I am an avid bike racer, and that is where I spend my spare time, training to race a bunch of other weekend warriors!
Growing up I tried to play on as many sports teams as possible, one year I was on 5 different basketball teams at the same time. I couldn't get enough of it. After playing basketball and tennis for four years in high school I was lucky enough to continue playing both at Principia College. It wasn't until college I learned the value of training and putting in the work during the off season. The summer before my senior basketball season I trained at IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL as well as in Boston with a private coach. My game improved dramatically and I had my best season.
After graduating from Principia I was asked to come back and be the assistant coach for the basketball program. Following the 2014-15 season I realized that solely being a coach was not what I wanted to do. I made the decision to move back home to the Boston area and that's where I found CoachUp. From my experience both as a coach and receiving private coaching I am so grateful I get to be a part of a company I truly see value in.
