I am from Austin, TX, and played competitive tennis at the junior and collegiate level for more than 15 years. I was ranked nationally from age 10-18 and competed in both the Texas and Southern sections. I played Division I college tennis at Texas A&M University from 2005-2008. I was recently honorably discharged this February from the United States Army after serving six years in the 75th Ranger Regiment. I was the head tennis professional at Walden on Lake Houston Golf and Country Club from February 2015-August 2015. I taught people of all ages and ability levels in private, semi-private, and group lesson structures up to 15 players at a time. I worked with children as young as 4 who were brand new to the game, and advanced super champs ranked highly in the state of Texas. I have in depth knowledge not only on the technical aspects of tennis, but also the physical requirements of the game. I recently moved back to Austin to further my education and spend more time with family.
Teaching Experience: 1 years
The primary reason that I like to teach tennis is for my students to get exercise, have fun, and improve as a tennis player. For beginners, I believe in a crawl, walk, run teaching philosophy in which certain fundamentals need to be mastered before progressing to more advanced areas of the game. I mix in hand feeding and basket feeding with live ball drills and structured point play. I encourage my students to practice outside of our lessons in order to ensure faster improvement.
I love all types of running and I am currently training for my second marathon. I enjoy playing football, soccer, basketball and golf. I also am involved in a veteran non profit organization.
