I’ve lived on the Northwest side of Chicago for the past 26 years. I grew up playing baseball and now play in an adult baseball league. In high school, I picked up basketball and football, and in my early 20s I started my coaching career. I have coached baseball, basketball, football, and track & field.
My first job was at a local YMCA, working as a summer camp counselor. I helped plan physical and extracurricular activities. I have always had a passion working with youth and the YMCA sparked my dedication.
