Originally from Connecticut, I started off my tennis career at the age of 19, traveling the country and playing in USTA qualifying tournaments. My first Professional job was at the Germantown Tennis Club in Danbury, CT-which I would later go on to own. I have taught in various clubs from CT, to Forest Hills, NY to Houston, TX and now back here in MA. With over thirty five years of experience teaching tennis fundamentals, I can certainly say I have a strong passion for tennis. I enjoy teaching players of all skill levels and abilities. Having been fortunate enough to coach many great students as they prepare for college and tournament play, I am constantly learning new coaching skills. I continue to play competitively even today. I look forward to meeting and working with the Thoreau members. See you on the court!
