It has always been my passion to help shape and mold the lives of young men through coaching and mentoring. It's my goal to help young men be successful not only in school but also in life. I was fortunate to have some great coaches while at East High School that invested and believed in me which helped to make me the person that I am today – namely Dan Salvi Sr., Chuck Wallin and Perry Giardini. These men helped me believe.
I don't look at my position as student support supervisor and coach as a job. Rather I look at what I do as my life's purpose. What better way to give back and affect lives than at East High School. My philosophy is, if I haven't helped or made someone better, then I have failed as a person and coach.
