A successful season for me is watching my players have fun, work hard, master their skills (individually and as a team) and develop desire / commitment / discipline / respect / confidence on and off the court.

Outside of my volleyball life, I enjoy working (helping manage several equity mutual funds), hanging out with my wife and two sons (hiking/skiing/traveling/cooking) and watching/coaching (Nordic) soccer.
