About Me

I'm a coach who specializes in working with athletes who strive to be the best version of themselves on and off the field.

Why I Want To Be A Coach

Mental performance coach putting the person before the athlete, teaching evidence-based mental skills and mindsets to boost confidence in school/work, sports, and life.

My Coaching Philosophy

Improve the quality of your thinking, improve the quality of your performance. The more we can spend time lifting ourselves up through our thoughts, not breaking us down, the more success will come our way.

I Best Describe My Coaching Style As…

Engaging - conversations are never lectures - both people are engaged in conversation to get the highest quality coaching. This entails you describing events, asking questions, and even cutting me off mid-sentence when a light bulb goes off in your brain!

My Favorite Book is…

Grit - Angela Duckworth

My Favorite Movie/TV Show is…

Get Out/Arrested Development

My Favorite Podcast is…

Huberman Lab/No Stupid Questions

My Proudest Accomplishment is…

Setting a franchise record for my college against UCLA last year in shots faced/saves made - ended in an NHL network interview!

I’m Most Grateful For…

My parents and their support

What I Look For In The Athletes I Coach

Focus, performing under pressure, confidence
