I was born on Long Island, New York the youngest of four siblings. I started playing lacrosse in middle school and chose goalie because our team needed one and my older brother played the position as well. In my high school years I helped lead Hewlett High School to its first and only Nassau County Championship. I was recruited to play in college at the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY but after a year at the USMA prep school I decided to attend St. Johns University were I started for two years. I still hold the school record for single game saves with 23 against Drexel 3/10/07. I finished my college career at the University at Albany and graduated with a bachelor's degree in Anthropology. After college I ended up moving to Los Angeles California and Coached for the UCLA Men's Lacrosse Program before moving to Las Vegas to continue my coaching career. I love the game of lacrosse I wish to pass my knowledge onto future generations and keep growing this beautiful game.
