With a 30 year sports industry and business ownership background, I have a proven track record of success and personal achievement. I started my first club management position as Director of Tennis Operations at Moraga Tennis, Swim and Fitness Club, running that program for 2 years. I was the Director of Tennis Operations at Blackhawk Country Club for 18 years where I grew their tennis program and overall membership from a nonexistent program to one of the finest in the country. I accomplished this by managing the entire member experience from the staff to the tennis facility operations. In the 18 years of tennis management, I feel I’m ready to move into a similar and more challenging role with a new team. After leaving Blackhawk I continued growing my personal book of clients teaching at my own facility in Diablo, CA. This move has been most gratifying to see my efforts transform many under-performing students who rose up to the highest levels in Nor Cal tennis. My summer tennis camp is the largest in the East Bay, attended by students of all levels and ages.
