What I enjoy most about working at Terra State:

Stephanie and I got the opportunity to build a program from the ground up in 2019. We love that we get to build it the way we want and the culture that we want. The campus welcomed us with open arms and has given us an opportunity that we have been dreaming for! 

Fun facts:

I have played with multiple Olympic Gold Medalists from the USA Men’s National Volleyball Team and many other professional players around the world.  

My favorite person to play with is Stephanie. We still play competitively and in leagues whenever we have free time.
