He also has experiences coaching with USA Volleyball as well as the high school and club circuit.

What is your favorite moment here at Colorado so far?

A summer-time activity you enjoyed growing up that is NOT your current sport?
I always enjoyed camping/backpacking.

Best advice for youth that are beginning to compete in athletics.
Learn how to play.† Getting coached is very important, but young athletes should learn how to compete and play without needing somebody to be watching.† Learn how to play because you like the activity, not because you have to be involved in it.

If you could sit in with one other coaching staff at CU for a game/event that is not your sport, which staff would it be and why?
Soccer.† That group of coaches is quite entertaining (funny).†
