Raised in New York City I started tennis at 11 years of age. Trained at Port Washington Tennis Academy on Long Island. Then finished Junior and senior year training at the late Harry Hopman’s International Tennis Academy in Largo, Florida. Ranked #13 in Boys 18's with the Eastern Tennis Association. University of Arizona alumni, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in French. Member of Pac 10 tennis team (“81’85) and traveled throughout Europe and Australia playing satellite circuits, as well as playing club tennis in Germany for one season.
I have worked in the tennis industry for over twenty year, and have travelled to Japan, England, France, Germany, and various parts of the United States teaching tennis. The past four years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with tennis greats John Newcombe, Roy Emerson, and Fred Stolle, to name a few, at Fantasy Tennis Camps in Texas and the Caribbean.
I enjoy teaching all levels, and my philosophy is simple... if you can get to the ball, you can hit it! Therefore, Cardio Tennis is one of my specialties.
