Meet the founder
Director and Coach
I have been coaching tennis and passionate about player development since 2007 and have been stringing racquets and playing the game since 1996. I grew up working and playing at tennis clubs and public courts in Irvine, CA. Since then, I have coached High School boys and girls Varsity, coached with multiple recreation programs, gained multiple certifications, and was a club teaching pro before going independent and developing Pure Pace Tennis Academy, a tournament training program for juniors. The academy was run out of California until 2022 when I moved to Florida and I am now directing programming for players from Red ball to full time High Performance players in the extended Tampa Bay area. Player Development is my main focus and I love to help players organize, schedule, and execute their training at all levels in order to optimize their development and success on and off court.
