Originally from the Philadelphia area, I've been involved in swimming as long as I can remember.  I swam at Foxcatcher and Germantown Academy under former Olympic coach Dick Shoulberg.  I was a state champion in high school.  I swam one year at Rutgers University where I was an Atlantic 10 champion and then transferred to Clarion University where I was a 4 time All American.  I was a coach in PA before I moved to Virginia and coached the past 8 years at a year round team here in Virginia.  I teach 6th grade math at Aylor Middle School in Stephens City.  I have an amazing wife, Stephanie, who was also an all American swimmer at Clarion.  We have one daughter, Madison, who is swimming also.   I am excited to be coaching here at Phoenix.
