About Me

Throws coach at Brookside Middle School in Sarasota, Florida. I also coach privately in the Sarasota/Manatee/Charlotte County area, with the goal to develop youth throwers to successfully compete at the HS level. I still compete at the masters level in all throws, but specialize in the hammer, weight and superweight events. I am coached by Andy Vince of Throws Coach Florida in Clermont, Florida.
