Family: My wife and I are parents to four children, two boys and two girls. We have all been very active with soccer. The children have all played since they were in preschool or kindergarten.

Playing/Coaching Experience: I played high school varsity soccer. I have been coaching soccer for 17 years, 10 with kickers. Some years I have coached two teams. I have been reffing soccer for nine years, seven with Kickers.

Other Interests: : Hawkeye football and basketball, the St. Louis Cardinals, movies and hanging out with my family. We do enjoy many other activities, usually what the children are doing. Drama's, music concerts, and a lot of sports.

Coaching Philosophy: When I coach at Kickers I want the players to have a better understanding of the game. I believe in fair play and teaching them both how to win and lose with character. I want my players to be able to play any position on the field, because if they want to play in high school and beyond they should understand the game. It's about having fun. Yes. It is fun to win, but in the end are you a better player, coach, parent, fan and person?
