I am excited to introduce myself as a new athletic specialist for elementary & middle school departments and Special Olympics program at TSD this year. With my previous background in the field of athletics as a youth athletic coordinator for seven years at California School for the Deaf, Fremont starting in 2008 and ending in 2015, I am honored to work with you and our developing Rangers starting now.
I am currently the USA Deaf Track & Field (USADTF) Long Distance coach. Long before the coaching part, I was on the USADTF team as a long-distance runner completing 1500m and 5000m events at the 1989 Deaflympics in New Zealand. Was also very much involved with the family track and field games, Berg/Seeger Classic and 2000 USADTF trials as a meet director.
In 2017, I was with USA Deaf Track & Field team participating in Deaflympics in Samsun, Turkey where they raced against many elite runners there. June 2019, I represented as USATF coach with two elite athletes participating in Japan Deaf Athletics Championship in Tokyo, Japan.
Other than athletics, I do enjoy outdoor activities, doing house projects and taking care of plants. I am the father of two children, Dakota (23) and Adele (21).
