I started swimming for the Surfers when I was 10 years old. As a swimmer for the Surfers and Layton High School I set several team records and went to Western Zone Championships three times. I was recruited by the University of Utah swim team, however choose to focus on my education rather than swim. I began coaching in 2000 when I started a swim team on Hill Air Force Base. Our team then merged with the Layton Surfers in 2001.  I have been coaching for the Surfers since then. I was a Utah Zone Coach 2005-2007, 2012-2015.  I was voted the Coach of the Year for the 2006-2007 swim season. Several of the swimmers I have coached qualified to compete at the Speedo Western Sectional Championships and many more have gone on to swim in college.
