Owner / Territory Director
TGA Premier Sports has proven to be a perfect match for my interests, passions and skills. I am presently the chapter owner of the TGA Tennis and Golf Programs of Orlando. I feel extremely lucky to be associated with the company and proud of the success we are having in providing golf and tennis learning experiences to elementary children. Orlando Schools have overwhelmingly welcomed our TGA programs into at least 40 area schools. Our Teach Grow Achieve philosophy is the foundation for combining athletics, academics and life lessons when instructing young students.
While earning a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sports Management, I had several experiences coaching high school tennis. I recognized that I very much enjoyed teaching and coaching. I then earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Physical Education and a master’s degree in Education. In addition, I have completed requirements for minoring in Adaptive Physical Education and coaching.
My first teaching experience, beginning in 2009, I was a Physical Education Teacher with Prince George’s Public Schools in Maryland. A job opportunity for my wife brought us to Orlando where I was hired by the Orange County Public School District to teach physical education at Riverside Elementary.
When the opportunity to purchase the franchise for TGA Premier Sports became available, I immediately realized I could combine my education, experiences, and love for teaching and sports into my career.
My wife, Michelle, and I have two children. Our son is seven years old, and our daughter is three years old. Although I often miss my home state and family in Minnesota, we are enjoying raising our children in Florida.
