10 Years of Sport Science, High-Performance, and Strength and Conditioning Experience
I am entering my tenth year of coaching at the collegiate level with stops including Michigan State University (BIG10), Wichita State University (AAC), and most recently, University of Colorado (PAC12). My central focus at Colorado is helping student-athletes achieve athletic longevity and enhanced performance. My philosophy is centered around understanding the individual athlete and developing strategic performance models that constantly evolve to best serve student-athlete and team performance.
My direct responsibilities include the integration of sport-science, utilization of cutting-edge technology, applied sport-psychological principles within an innovated strength and conditioning program. I am responsible for the day-to-day education, assessment, curriculum development, and mentorship of several professional interns each semester.
My experiences have directly assisted with the physical and mental preparation of multiple Olympians, professional athletes, All-Americans and conference championship teams.
I hold direct experience as an instructor in the classroom and also as a professional mentor to many young strength & conditioning coaches in collegiate athletics. I continue to consult with many collegiate programs regarding program design, training equipment, and the administration of analytics, sport-monitoring, and athlete benchmark testing protocols.
While at Michigan State University, I was a graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach and worked with multiple Big 10 championship teams and several individual All-Americans. I assisted with the strength and conditioning programs for 17 Michigan State Olympic sport teams.
