I have over 20 years of experience playing and coaching soccer. In 2013, I left my desk job in corporate America and followed my passion for soccer, founding Elite Fùtbol Training (EFT). Having many accomplishments on the soccer field, my motto is “fùtbol every day”. My passion is using a unique combination of training techniques and motivation to bring out the greatness in young, energetic, and passionate soccer players. Soccer and physical fitness is a daily part of my life. I enjoy my time with my teenage daughter, who keeps me compassionate and sensitive to the needs of young athletes.
