I am a volleyball camp director, volleyball trainer and club coach. I live in Roanoke, Virginia. After 32.5 years as a school math teacher, I retired in 2013.

My staff and I have directed 85 camps in the past 7 years. We are directing 13 in the summer of 2017. My staff and I also give about 40 hours of private lessons each month.

I have coached club volleyball since 1991. My teams have qualified for USAV Junior Nationals 4 times.

My stepdaughter played 4 years of D1 volleyball at Radford University.

I was the head coach at Bassett High School for 16 years from 1985 - 2000, winning 267 matches while losing only 47. While at Bassett, my teams won 11 conference championships and 10 regular season championships. They qualified for the Regional Tournament 15 of those 16 years.

I was the head coach at Roanoke Catholic, where I took the team from 1 win the year before he started, to 9 wins in 2002 and to 13 wins in 2003.

My 1999 team advanced to the final 4 in the state tournament. Also in 1999, I was named a VHSL All-Star Coach, and was named Roanoke Times "Timesland Volleyball Coach of the Year".

I founded & directed the Piedmont Attack Junior Program from 1991 until 2000.

I am presently the 6th winning-est coach in Virginia with nearly 280 varsity high school coaching victories. Sixty-two of my former players have played college volleyball.
