There are a lot of great coaches and clubs who know how to train players as a team, but lack the high-level playing experience and firsthand exposure to the intricacies of the sport that can make all the difference in player development on an individual level.

No matter where you are in your soccer journey, I can guarantee I have been in your shoes. I've experienced every step one can experience in becoming professional. Through private training, I aim to share this wealth of knowledge and experience with you, and focus on the details that separate a good player from a great player.


Lastly, my decision to offer private training stems from a genuine desire to give back to the sport that has given me so much.

"I'm a former French professional soccer player with 11 seasons of experience as a starting right back defender in France Ligue 1 and Major League Soccer. I dedicated my life to the game from age 6, joining the professional academy at age 10, becoming professional at age 19, and retiring after 11 seasons. I'm excited to train with you. From beginning to end, academy to professional level, I've been through what it takes to become professional. I'm happy to pass on my knowledge and help you become the best player you can be.
