About Me

I am a former certified tennis professional who has been playing and competing for over 40 years. I have been teaching the game since 1986 and I hold an advanced degree and formal training in Psychology. Furthermore, I have spent over ten years in secondary and post-secondary (academic) education. This unique combination of training and experience has allowed me great insight into how humans learn and develop new skills at varying stages in life.

My goal is to develop students into stylish and versatile players who have no fear at the net. Therefore, an attacking mentality is highly emphasized along with the skill set to accompany it. However, just as important is the idea that having fun and staying fit is the overall objective in living the tennis lifestyle.

Indeed, playing tennis is fun and becomes even more fun the better you get. What’s more, you’ll hardly even notice that you’ve given yourself a total and complete body workout everytime you walk off the tennis court!

My recovery from a life altering car crash, and a host of sports injuries has given me a new perspective on life and the game of tennis and coaching. To me, each and every waking day is an opportunity to introduce the wonder of tennis to everybody I meet and to help those who have already been enlightened to be the best that they can be!

Hoping to see you on the court soon!

Teaching Style

In addition to fundamentals, my instruction emphasizes formation of the "attack mentality" and the shots/game to complement it. My advanced degree in psychology allows me to tailor my instruction to my student's specific needs based on the student's individual learning style. I use video to assess and analyze technique which greatly assists students in learning and developing proper technique. I also incorporate ball-throwing machines in the sessions, which allow me to stand near the student to closely examine and verbally instruct.
