My passion for coaching comes from a love of the game and joy of seeing people improve.

My coaching style is centred on a lot of hitting and match-play combined with the fundamentals of serving, rallying and transitioning to the net.

Off the court I enjoy spending time with family, playing soccer and listening to music. 

My favourite players are Nadal (love his determination and attitude) and Sabalenka (great to watch her very offensive game style).
