Growing up I played high level travel hockey for various organizations in the Buffalo area, including the 1999 Midget Tier I NYS champion, Buffalo Saints '81 Selects. I also played four years of varsity hockey at Hamburg High School and was co-captain for two years and for the last several years I have coached both girls and boys at various levels. In my decades of experience, I am most fortunate to have learned from many excellent coaches, teammates, family, and friends. As a coach I am firmly committed to improving the skills of my players and preparing them for the next level of hockey. There is so much more that I have taken from the game and bring to my players. Learning how to be a good teammate, accountability to one's self and others, a strong work-ethic, just to name a few. Such core principles will benefit our players throughout their lives.
