Consulting and Education

General Consultation Call

Training Advice and Guidance

Connect for an open ended conversation with a veteran coach and athlete. We all invest so much time into our training, the idea of using that time inefficiently should give pause to anyone. Years of experience affords us plenty of time to learn what works and what doesn't. As a professional coach I have coached over one thousand athletes and observed countless strokes. I've approached training and technical challenges from numerouse angles and have seen and learned from the myriad of ways athletes react to instruction and feedback. I've led my athletes from their very first strokes to gold medals at the national championship, recruitment to most of the nations top schools, and well over a million dollars in awarded athletic scholarships. The consultation call is an excellent way to share that experience with you in your pursuit of maximizing your training investment of time and energy.

Program Structure and Management

Learn from my twelve years of experience at the helm of a community program that grew from a dozen athletes erging in a basement to over 260 athletes at it's peak with a $750,000 annual budget. I've been responsible for the hiring and oversight of over 40 coaches, purchased over $1.7 million in capital assets, sold over $400,000 of those assets as part of a regular fleet rotation, founded and directed three major regional regattas, and written dozens of published press releases. Success and failures are hard won and both have lent me invaluable experience. I'm happy to share that experience with you so that you may lead your organization to new levels of success while avoiding many of the struggles and failures that I encountered in my own journey.

Benefit From Some
Free Advice Now

Position yourself for success.
Time is a priceless resource and you devote so much of it to your training. Maximize that investment by seeking out the best training environment, coaches, and teammates that you can find. I credit a lot of my own success to putting myself in a position to succeed, not just the work I did along the way. I joined the best teams, and surrounded myself with the best athletes and coaches. Make these decisions with passionate self interest and once you have found your training home, then you can focus on being the best teammate that you can be.
Individual Needs > Team Needs > Team Wants > Individual Wants
The team does NOT come first. YOU come first. But do not confuse what you need with what you want. You must take care of your needs first, because if a team is full of individuals compromized by their own personal sacrifice of health or happiness, then it will fail.
Get faster when you aren't training.
Reduce stress and anxiety, get lots of sleep, and eat well. The best athletes I've coached were not physical outliers, they were the ones that displayed exceptional skill with regard to time managment, got to sleep early and consistently each evening, and fueled themselves with quality foods and in sufficient quantities to meet their above average energy demands.
