Experience and success is why you should consider me to be your bowling coach. Not only am I first person to complete the USAB/USBC Gold Certification program in 1999, I have also received numerous national coaching awards with regards to my helping countless bowlers improve -- including some who have gone on to make Team USA and Junior Team USA!
My coaching style is designed to adapt to all types of bowling styles and skill levels. Whether your average is high or low, right or left handed... or two handed, my coaching techniques have proven successful with bowlers all over the world.
The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) selected me as their 2010 & 2012 National Developmental Coach of the Year. This is the first time anyone from the bowling industry has been selected for a USOC national award. Since the USOCs Development Coach of the Year award is open to all coaches, and that it covers every sport (47 in total) in the U.S. Olympic system, it is arguably one of the most significant coaching recognitions in all of sports.

In 2010, I founded high school bowling in Broward County. Working with the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA), together we created a high school bowling program that is a varsity sport at the state level, yet is only intramural (non-varsity) in the county. Numerous Broward County high schools have registered for bowling with the FHSAA; and there are many more to come. The 2017-18 school year not only marks the 8th season of Broward County High School Bowling, but it is also FHSAA District 15 for the fifth year.
Broward County high school bowling has produced the 2013 FHSAA Girls State "Singles" Champion and three girls selections to the 2013-14 and 2016-17 USBC/Dexter All-American High School teams.

I am also the former Head Coach of Gulliver Preparatory School's boys and girls varsity bowling teams. From 2006-07 through 2009-10 (2 years as a volunteer coach and 2 years as head coach) Gulliver Prep bowlers enjoyed numerous successes. These included: 2 State Singles Titles, 1 State Academic Championship, 1 District Team Championship, and 3 District Team Runner-ups.
With my coaching, bowlers have gone on to win numerous medals and tournament titles. The ultimate coaching success came when the Thailand National Bowling Team won its country's first-ever world championship GOLD medal during the 1995 FIQ World Championships in Reno!
From individual lessons to group seminars, I'm available for all types of coaching. I can travel to any city in the United States, or any country around the world. My clinics and seminars can be customized to target any caliber of bowler. My specialty, however, is individualized one-on-one instruction. Whether you are new to bowling or are training for professional tournaments and/or trying to qualify for a national team, I am the best at helping you get the most out of you!
