I am the owner and head training coach of Charleston Speed Academy, Charleston, South Carolina, which I founded in 2014. Certified by the National Association of Speed & Explosion (NASE), we are the premier speed and agility training resource for all area student-athletes. I am a former D1 football player in the Mid-American Conference from Ohio University, BBA 1985. I have volunteered my time since 2000 to help the Pittsburgh Steelers athletic training staff on gamedays in virtually all NFL venues. My sales and business development career began in decorative lighting sales which quickly lead to executive level management positions on a national and global platform. My top clients include Marriott International, Hilton Worldwide, Walt Disney Company, IHG, Four Seasons Hotels, and Carnival Cruise Lines.
