How long have you been with Koa, and in what capacity (BABL, travel, clinics/lessons)?

I started working at Koa in February 2018 as a coach/instructor and baseball operations assistant. I will be coaching the BABL A Dingers as well as providing instruction for clinics and private lessons.

Playing/coaching experience:

In 2017 I played overseas in Rome, Italy for S.S. Lazio. Prior to that, I played collegiate baseball at Sacred Heart University. I have 5+ years coaching in both individual and team environments and have coached several rec and travel teams in both, New Jersey and New York.

What makes you tick (what motivates you)?

The passion for coaching and the sport of baseball. Coaching is the only job I’ve ever had where I do not have to look at the clock and hope my day is over. Nothing motivates me like a love for what you do.

What’s the best thing about baseball?

The atmosphere and extra base hits.

Local Connection:

I recently moved to Washington, D.C. and loving it!

Non-baseball interests:

After making the switch from full time player to full time coach, I am attempting to fill that competitive void with giving cycling/road racing a go. I am also a big history buff, so I enjoy museums and being outdoors.
