I grew up in Florence and graduated from Big Sky High School in 2007. After high school I traveled to Salt Lake and played college baseball. After I suffered multiple shoulder injuries I decided to come home to Big Sky Country and finish my education. I ultimately enrolled at the University of Montana-Western pursuing a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in History. After my playing career was complete, I decided to start coaching baseball, and I am now currently entering my 5th year as an Assistant Coach for the AA Missoula Mavericks. I love spending my spare time hiking, hunting, and fly-fishing.
