    I started my swimming career as a freshman at Hiram College. During four seasons as a Terrier I was team captain, my junior and senior years, as well as “All Conference” in the Ohio Athletic Conference (3rd in the 1650yd Freestyle and 400 IM).
    During graduate school in Physical Education at Kent State University
    I also volunteered at Hiram College as an assistant swimming and diving coach. My first collegiate head coaching job was at Loras College in Dubuque, IA. After three very successful seasons at Loras I accepted the head coaching job at Southwestern University and began the tradition of collegiate swimming and diving at that institution. In 2005 I changed careers and became a middle school science teacher at Douglas Benold Middle School in Georgetown, TX.
    I reside in Georgetown with my wife Suzy and son Nathaniel and daughter Corinne. In 2013 I became the head swimming coach for GISD and coach both East View and Georgetown High Schools.
