Look no further, as I, and my team of seasoned pickleball instructors are here to guide you through an exhilarating journey on the court. With an impressive record of 13 tournament victories under my belt in events up to the 5.0 level, I am thrilled to offer you the opportunity to join my highly sought-after pickleball corporate events, clinics, and private lessons! 

Pickleball, the fastest-growing sport in the country, has captivated players of all ages and skill levels. As a certified instructor and tournament player, I have experienced the thrill of competition firsthand and developed a profound understanding of the game's intricacies. With my proven expertise and strategic insight, I am eager to help you unlock your full potential and elevate your pickleball skills to new heights!


Oh and about the nickname "Danimal," it's a funny story really. About 2 months after I first started playing pickleball, I entered a tournament and had to register with the USAPA (USA Pickleball Association). On the registration form, they ask you for a nickname, which I entered "Danimal" thinking no one would ever see it. Sure enough, during my first tournament, when being called over the loudspeakers for my matches, the announcer yelled Danimal rather than my first or last name. I was embarrassed and couldn't believe it. However, while walking to the courts, everyone high-fived me and told me they loved the nickname. That weekend, I won a gold medal in Men's Singles, Mixed Doubles, and Men's Doubles completing a Triple Crown in my first tournament. Lo and behold, the nickname has stuck and is now forever!
