I've been coaching for 8 years now with the Denton Area Swim Club and have done my very best to advance the swimming community in Denton. My coaching philosophies are very self driven. I believe that what you get out of your sport will be what you want to put into sport. I will do my very best to help our swimmers attain their fitness goals, whether its to go to Nationals, lose a few pounds, or meet like minded individuals to have fun with. My most important task is to connect with our athletes and do my best to understand them as a whole individual - not just someone who swims on our team. Because of this, I think you'll find our team's culture is friendly, supportive, and encouraging.
I am a competitive individual myself. When I’m not swimming, biking, running, or coaching, or hanging out with my beautiful wife Katie, I am President of a company called Systeem Medical Information Systems. SMIS delivers managed network services to multi-site medical facilities. I may be a geek, but I’m really an athlete at heart.
I am a level 1 ASCA coach and have attended and passed a Level 3 USMS coaching seminar headed by one of the best masters coaches in the world, Scott Bay. I plan to attain many more coaching certifications such as a USA triathlon certification and have already attended power clinics produced by Saris Cycling and Joe Friel. Coaching isn't my vocation, but definitely a passion.
