It all started for me as an adult, learning this game from the ground up. I've worked very hard to become a solid USTA league and tournament player. I've been playing competitively for 19 years and have amassed a ton of knowledge from more hours of matches, lessons, camps, and drills than I care to count. Many teaching pros are better players than me. But I'm a very good instructor precisely because I learned tennis as an adult. I love coaching the Boys and Girls teams at Osseo Senior High and teaching this sport (and its life lessons) more than I ever thought possible, so a few years ago I decided to pursue certification by the USPTA. The examination process was rigorous and made me an even better instructor. I will help you learn and improve and have fun — this is my way of giving back to the sport.
