I then share what I learn in my email newsletter called “Coach Notes” every week.

About Me…

I joined IMG Academy in 2015. I currently serve as the Head of Leadership Development. In this capacity, I develop and deliver curriculum for our student-athletes (youth, secondary, post-secondary) across 8 sports. I also work with visiting companies and professional athletes. Lessons consist of communication, personal and group leadership, developing identity, and building team culture. My writing has been covered by dozens of major media outlets like Strengthcoach.com, Medium, ESPN 580, and more. Over 50,000 people read my Coach Notes each month. I don’t have all the answers, but I’m happy to share what I’ve learned so far.
