Soccer is a very important part of my life and I strive to do my very best. This is the third year my family and I have traveled two hours each way to Sacramento to practice and play with my club team.

On non travel days I train for two to three hours a day on the technical, tactical, and mental aspects of my game. I devote at least one to one and a half hours on the physical aspects including the following exercises: endurance, plyometrics, weightlifting, and core routines.

Keeping in shape is a daily requirement of mine and I make it the highest of my priorities.

I played baseball for 10 years having the highest batting average in the league for many of those years. My little League minor and major teams won the championship along with my first team in Babe Ruth. Also, at the age of 12, I had the most homeruns hit in our league.

Living in South Lake Tahoe has provided me with the opportunity to take part in many activities. When soccer permits, these activities include skiing in the winter, golfing, and swimming.
