A  native of Abbotsford, BC, Canada,  I started on skates at 3 years old, and grew up on street hockey and rinks North of the Border.  I received an early foundation for skating with instructors Marv Waller (2x BC Hockey Development Award in Coaching), Dwayne Lowdermilk (NHL Alum) and Power Skating Pioneer Laura Stamm .  After playing AAA Minor Hockey for the Abbotsford Hawks and 3 years in BC Junior Hockey, I came to the USA  on an opportunity to play for the NCAA Division III , St  Norbert  College  Green  Knights .  After college and graduating with a degree in Business Administration I pursued working in logistics management for a couple of firms in the Chicago-land area.  
However, I missed and wished that I had continued my Passion for the Game of Hockey.  
I started coaching and assistant coaching  various Bantam AA and Squirt AA teams.  
This led me down the path to spending  
4 years skills training and mentoring over 2600 private and semi private lessons.  For 4 years after that I was the Lead Hockey Skating & Skills Player Development Coach  for the Winnetka Warriors , Winfield  and WarHawks  Hockey Clubs.  In this role, I provided over 1000 small group and large group skills training sessions for Players aged 6 -14. 
Over the past 4 years and Currently I'm providing Hockey Skating & Skills Instruction / Coaching and Development for kids ages 6-14 with the NORTHWEST CHARGERS ORGANIZATION & SAINT VIATOR LIONS HOCKEY CLUB
When I'm not at the Rink,  
you can find me devoted to spending time with my family, Wife Tiffany, Daughter Callie and Son Joey.

  Thank You for Supporting DIAMOND HOCKEY. 

I Look forward to seeing You and Your Family at the Rink!




Born and raised in Chicago, I started skating at 8 years old.  I grew up playing all sports, hockey and football in the winter and baseball and swimming in the summer.  I started playing at McFetridge Sports Center throughout my youth and went on to play High School Hockey at Niles West.  

I have been coaching for many years and turned my focus to hockey 7 years ago.  I’ve coached Mites thru Bantam and am currently coaching the Northwest Chargers. I am also the Hockey coordinator for the Mount Prospect Bolts, Little Blackhawks Program, and Hockey Tots (learn to skate).

My goal as a coach is to see skill development, personal growth and fun throughout my practices.  With that goal in mind I have done private skates and small group trainings to be able to teach kids of all ages and skill levels. As a coach, I’ve found that there is no greater reward than to see my players develop and love the game even more.  

Outside of the rink, I have spent that last 10 years as a Youth Minister. This has given me the opportunity to show my love for God and to show people what loving others truly looks like. I’ve even been able to combine my passions for God and hockey by coaching for Hockey Ministries International (HMI), Youth Bible camps, and more. 

God, my family, and hockey are my passions in my life.
