Joe started playing soccer at age 4, coming from a large family of passionate soccer players and coaches in the area. His love for the game has continued since that early age and he hopes to pass that along to the next generation of players and future coaches.  Joe believes in a very positive approach to coaching where a confident and fearless player is always going to improve and become the best individual and team player they can be. 

Joe currently resides in Liverpool with his wife Kristine who he met on the soccer field in college, his son Ian and daughter Sydney, both of whom play for SDA. Joe's favorite soccer teams include A.C. Milan and whatever team of players he is currently coaching.
