I was born and raised in N.Y., but now have lived in N.J. for 10 years. I have played tennis since I was eight years old, and had dreams of becoming a Pro tennis player, but injuries and poor coaching (especially in college) ended my dream. I spent a few years working in commercial banking in NY after college. Then one day during a long lay off from banking I found an advertisement in the back of a tennis magazine offering the opportunity to become a certified tennis instructor. Once I became certified the rest was easy. In my free time I enjoy listening to music, and listen to all types of music. I enjoy watching movies especially actions flix, sci fi, and the occasional romantic comedy. I love playing and watching sports especially tennis, soccer, and football. I try to get to the gym at least twice a week, and enjoy cardio traing and lifting weights. I am a straightforward and honest person, who has been told that I am a good listener and problem solver.
