WHAT DO YOU DO BESIDES VOLLEYBALL? 

I love spending time with my wife and our loved ones. We like to do pretty much anything active and we love to travel.

WHY DO YOU LOVE VOLLEYBALL?

I caught the bug. For those of you that have the bug, you know what I am talking about. There is something different about volleyball. I love the expression "we are better together" to describe that difference. There is something to be said about how we learn to be the best that we can possibly be while still having to fully depend and rely on those that we are working with in order to achieve a common goal. I think that the connection that has to life is too real to miss and I love sharing in that process with the players I am fortunate enough to work with.
