I am a the head track and field coach at Bishop Alemany High School. I was a collegiate hurdler at California State University, Northridge, where I knew that eventually I would also want to be a track and field coach. I am responsible for coaching everything from the 800 down to the 100. I am USATF level 2 certified in sprints, hurdles, and relays. I have coached several athletes to reach pretty high speeds, and would also like to give you the tools to do the same for yourself, your athletes, or your children.
