Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two children Reese, and Ryan. I grew up playing on the baseball fields at Missouri 3 & 2. My childhood dream of playing professional came true when I was drafted in the 29th round by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1996. Every off season when I came back home from a long season I was teaching the art of pitching to students of the game. Now I have 20+ years of teaching experience. After many years of teaching under the same roof I wanted to evolve and grow as Kansas City’s best pitching instructor. I wanted to be independent from any organization and have access to ALL players that play the game. I can help those athletes become the best they can for their organization without any mindset of that organization. So I created Premium Pitching KC.
I have been involved in coaching baseball and softball for 12+ years, including 8+ at the high school level. I am currently the owner of Velocity Academy and provide baseball pitching lessons. I am a believer in the Driveline approach, and am a Driveline Plus member. I follow their approach to gaining velocity through proper warmup, recovery, plyo/weighted balls and proper mechanics through the kinetic chain.
