Hobbies: I enjoy playing sports, especially soccer (high school and college) and basketball (high school). I'm currently coaching the Riverdale High School Lady Mavericks soccer team and also the Marysville Lions 7-8 boys basketball team. I also love watching college sports, mainly football and basketball. When I have some down time, I like to read non-fiction and watch action movies. I'm frequently riding a bicycle either to commute to work or see the country. I've ridden from Portland to San Francisco and also from Nashville, Tennessee to Minneapolis, Minnesota. I’ve been to several music festivals over the past few years and really enjoy listening to live music. My passion is working with students and young adults to better themselves.
These are pictures from my college soccer days and my high school basketball days.
