I'm from Ann Arbor Michigan. I started playing at 10 years old. I played at AnnArbor Pioneer High School. I graduated high school in 1989 and then attended Washtenaw Community College. I was the assistant coach of the Pioneer High school boys and girls team from 1990-1996. We won 4 state championships during my time there. While I was coaching I was also teaching tennis at Liberty Athletic Club. During that time I was working on my game playing with players from the University of Michigan Tennis teams. I taught at Liberty from 1990-2001. I became the assistant head pro at Travis Pointe Country Club from 2001-2007. In the summer of 2007 I taught at the U of M summer tennis camps. In 2007 I became a teaching professional at Pine Lake Country Club where I am still currently teaching at. In 2008 I became the head coach of Bloomfield Hills Lahser Varsity Girls Tennis team till 2012. During that time we finished # 2, 4, 6, 5, and 9th in the state. Winning regionals 3 years. I was the Head Pro of Cranbrook Swim and Tennis Club from 2008-2011. I now live in beautiful Brighton Michigan and I love it here.

I'm very good at being able to adapt to any style and level of player. I emphasize good technique and follow through. But being able to teach advance levels as well. Like the loop backswing, open stances, and the modern forehand. I like to start off with mini tennis then work on ground strokes from the baseline and progress to live ball. I work on the volley and serve as well so I can see all aspects of there game. Unless its a beginner then we start slow with just ground strokes.
