Represented city and county teams in England before coming to America and playing for the University of Mary (2012 - 2016).

Moved back to Bismarck to complete my master’s degree and was the graduate assistant coach for the University of Mary men’s program (2018 - 2020). In 2018 I was also hired as the technical director for Dakota United SC and have been in that role since (2018 - present).

I have been coaching soccer for 14 years and have coached in England, USA, and China. Throughout my years I have worked with players all the way from ages 3 (DUSC) to 24 (University of Mary). I currently hold a US Soccer Federation C license.

Why do you coach?

Soccer has provided me with lifelong skills, friends, opportunities, and enjoyment and coaching allows me to share these experiences and my love for the game. Being able to share my passion for soccer is not only is rewarding for me, but coaching also offers me the exciting challenge of pushing to improve soccer within the community.
