Originally from the suburbs of Detroit, I've now been a proud Chicagoan for over a decade. After spending my first ten years as an Elementary Science teacher and coach within Chicago Public Schools, I am excited to continue my passion for working with kids and sports as the Area Developer and Program Director of i9 Sports. I am grateful for the opportunity to be directly involved in providing a positive youth sporting experience for as many children as possible throughout the North Side community. As a father of three, I'm quickly realizing just how rapidly the time passes and the importance of creating lasting memories with every chance we get. Having fun in the moment, practicing toward continuous improvement, forming life-long friendships, and learning how to win and lose with grace helps develop the entire child as only sports can do. We hope to see you and your family on the i9 Sports field soon as we provide a fun, safe, and convenient experience beyond the game!
