I have a unique lacrosse journey as I didn't start playing until my sophomore year of High School at DePaul Catholic in NJ. The program began as a club in 2002 and then made the jump to Varsity in 2003. By 2004 (Senior year) I went from not being able to cradle to being named 1st Team All-State scoring 76pts in my final year. However, I was not recruited to play lacrosse in college. I went to Marist College to play Football and did so my Freshman year. I then walked on to the lacrosse team that winter, made the team, started at Defensive Midfield and won a MAAC Championship losing to eventual National Champions, Johns Hopkins in the 2005 NCAA tournament. In my sophomore year I switched to LSM, a position I had never played before in my short 4 year lacrosse career. I embraced the role and started every game for the remainder of my time at Marist, eventually being named Team Captain and a DPOY Nominee in 2008.

I have been coaching lacrosse in some form since graduating from HS in 2004. I have been involved with Mad Dog since its earliest days. I have watched the program grow to become one of the best youth and club organizations in the country and I am blessed to coach some of the most talented players in the nation.

Through my playing and coaching experience I have been lucky enough to develop some strong relationships within the lacrosse world.

I look forward to continuing to grow the game with Mad Dog and through coaching at the High School level for as long as possible.
