My passion for the game started in the early 80’s on the sands of San Diego.  Playing the beach circuit up and down the California coast to the beaches of Mexico.  After being brain-baked for several years I came in out of the sun where I found a new purpose in life as a setter.  What a different animal this “indoor” game is.  Controlled environment, no weather delays/cancellations, my vertical was probably 4 times higher than in the sand and my speed felt 10 times faster. I felt like superman indoors … and loved it! Then quickly realized that I was not the only superman on the court … they all were supermen, only …  just not as short as me.  I was fortunate to set for one of the powerhouse teams in the Aloha region (yeah … traveling the south pacific, Japan, Korea playing volleyball … pinched myself quite a few times).  I feel really blessed with the playing opportunities I’ve been given and really wanted to give back to the sport that had given me so much.  So, I started coaching in the early 90’s with open level men and women that lasted about 10 years or so then moving to the DC area slowed volleyball to a near stop … until … my youngest says to me in 2014 (she was 11 at the time) … Daddy, I want to learn to play volleyball … Yes indeed, the bug bit me again!!!
