Get to Know Me
Sports have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I could always be found on some field or court around Jamestown, RI. In high school, I played soccer, basketball and baseball. So basically from early September until sometime in June, I was practicing or playing a sport. I went on to play Division I college soccer at URI. A couple years later, I was back at URI as an assistant coach of the URI Men’s Soccer team. Currently, I am the head coach for the North Kingstown Boys Soccer team.
It should come as no surprise that sports would be the basis for my personal career. I received my BS degree in Health and Fitness from URI.Since then, I’ve worked passionately in the field of sports performance training.
In 2008, a longtime friend of mine, Dr. Michael Bradley, mentioned that the practice was planning on adding sports performance training to their continuum of care. I told him I was the guy for the job, and I’ve been here ever since.
South County Orthopedics is proud to offer Orthopedic Medicine, Physical Therapy and Sports Performance Training. But we don’t just offer it, we LIVE it. What I mean by that is when it comes to individual clients, my staff and I work closely with South County Orthopedics doctors and our Physical Therapy specialists to ensure the highest quality continuum of care.
Having played on so many team sports, I love the opportunity to work with and train an entire team. For me, there’s something very special about watching them collectively improve through training and taking that improvement into their games, matches or races.
My favorite part of my job, whether it’s with an entire team or an individual athlete, is interacting with clients. I am always amazed, impressed, and gratified with how dedicated and motivated each client is, regardless of their age and ability.
My passion for sports doesn’t end at the end of my work day. I coach my kids’ soccer teams and run youth soccer clinics. I direct two local soccer camps, and sponsor a number of local races and events. In my spare time, I enjoy a nice round of golf or being outdoors with my family and friends.
