Cal Tech
Division 3

I just finished my first season assisting Coach Eslinger at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). This past season was historic for Caltech, as we had the most wins in 65 years, as well as breaking multiple school records. At Caltech I am in charge of recruiting, scouting opposing teams, coming up with defensive matchups, as well as participating in practices. Prior to Caltech I worked at California Miramar University for two years.  I was involved with every aspect of running the basketball program, from scouting prospects to head coaching the schools developmental team (JV). Before coaching, I studied at the University of Saint Katherine in San Marcos, California where I was a member of the basketball team. During my time at Saint Katherine, I played against some great players and coaches (i.e. Steve Fisher, Delon Wright) which helped shape me as a coach and athlete.
