Meet our team
I’m excited to train with some of the best beach volleyball coaches and players in BC, and I’m proud to be part of the growing Hawks community in Vancouver. I work constantly to improve my skills as a player, and I understand the value of getting detailed feedback in a repetition-based training environment. My experience and improvement in high level beach and indoor volleyball has been a direct result of the high level coaching I received. I hope to pass on the details and strategies fundamental to my success, to those looking to take their volleyball game to the next level. Looking forward to coaching the Hawks again!
A decade of coaching has allowed me to recognize the importance of placing an athlete’s development at the centre of my coaching philosophy. I strive to create lifelong students of the game who possess a confidence that transcends beach volleyball. Guiding athletes in their skill development inspires me to develop my skills as a coach, as I too am a student of the game. See you in the sand!
Playing volleyball at the varsity and international levels has profoundly influenced my health, character, confidence, and friendships. Most importantly, after 12 years, I still get a rush from fierce competition or an awesome rally. I want to help others experience all that this incredible sport has offered me. My priority is to build and master the fundamentals of passing and setting, while concurrently focusing on strategic tactics, forward looking mindsets, and channelling the competitive spirit, which have all helped and continue to help me as a player and a coach.
Getting beach volleyball-specific coaching in my high school years was big for my success as a player in the pro and semi pro circuits in Canada, USA, and now Japan. I hope that a few tips will help propel some of the Hawks into stronger, and long lasting playing careers.
I am a UAB Blazers/SFU Clan Alumni and a recent graduate of Simon Fraser University. After finishing my 4 years of indoor eligibility at SFU, I transferred to University of Alabama Birmingham to finish my final semester of eligibility playing Division I beach volleyball in the NCAA.
