About Us

I played competitive hockey for 18 years, starting in developmental hockey working my way up to playing AAA and college hockey. I graduated form Kiski Area High School in 2009 and was selected to be a PIHL All-Star for the 2008-2009 season. Aside from High School hockey, I also played AAA hockey for the Pittsburgh Hornets and Pittsburgh Viper Stars (Esmark Stars) organizations. While playing AAA hockey I was able to be noticed as a NAHL, USHL, and OHL prospect. After playing amateur hockey I played my last season with Indiana University of Pennsylvania Crimson Hawks ACHA D1 team for the 2013-2014 season. Injuries started to slow me down and I decided to step away from competitive hockey. Coaching started when I was 15 years old volunteering to help coach learn to play hockey programs. Coaching at a young age helped me with my own game/skills and gave me an opportunity to see a future in coaching. I have been a full time coach for the last 2 seasons, starting my 3rd season this year. I started coaching with the Pittsburgh Selects and now coach with the Esmark Stars and Vipers programs. 2016 - 2017 season, Pittsburgh Selects 14U Assistant Coach 2017 - 2018 season, Esmark Stars 12U Head Coach 2018 - 2019 season, Esmark Stars 15U Assistant Coach, Pittsburgh Vipers Player Development Coordinator
