I am a former college baseball player who played two years at Cerritos College in Norwalk, California and two years at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah.  After my baseball career was over I started playing men's fastpitch softball at the highest level for men.  My main team was the Larry H. Miller Toyota team based out of Utah.  I was fortunate enough to take my talents overseas playing one season in New Zealand and one season in Australia.

 

I started coaching college softball in 2010 as an assistant coach at Southern Utah University an NCAA D1 program.  In 2013 I became the head softball coach at Barton Community College an NJCAA D1 program.  I was the head coach at Barton Community College for four years.  I made the transition back to the NCAA D1 level in 2017-18 as the assistant coach at Campbell University.​
