My love for the game of baseball began very early. I played this game beginning at a young age and recognized the mental and physical aspects of it early on.
While living in Cody, Wyoming, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to coach my son’s twelve-year-old team to its first Wyoming State Championship.
Upon moving to Prescott in 2006, I began providing private hitting instruction to local youth as well as youth from the surrounding areas. This private instruction transpired into what is now known as the Process Driven Hitters Club.
From 2008 to 2010, I was part of ABC Baseball Camps in Phoenix, Arizona, a national provider of baseball camps throughout the country.
In 2010, I began assistant coaching at Prescott High School, serving as an infield and hitting coach. It was an absolute privilege to coach my son through his high school career.
In 2010, I was head coach of a USA Select 18U team that traveled throughout Arizona and parts of Colorado for tournaments.
In 2011, I was involved with the Edmonton Capitol's, a professional independent baseball team from Canada, throwing batting practice as well as working hitters in the cages.
In 2015, I was asked to be a part of the Kansas City Royals for extended spring training. This was a big honor and especially exciting when the Royals won the World Series that season.
Also in the summer of 2015, I was invited to travel to Edmonton Canada as an assistant coach and be a part of the Edmonton Prospects, a college summer team. Upon returning from Canada,
Process Driven Baseball Academy was founded.
From 2010 to present, I have been working with a pro-ball camp every January in Phoenix and Florida. Along with 16 major league hitting coaches and pitching coaches, we provide a four-day-long, spring training style atmosphere, while teaching the game to men of all ages from all over the country.
I enjoy volunteering my time with area high school baseball teams and travel teams as well as working with Little League coaches, throwing batting practice and teaching the game that I love. I will continue to spend time focused on private instruction through the Process Driven Hitters Club, while further developing the Process Driven Baseball Academy.
