Nick joined Wave in 2021 and has been coaching youth volleyball since 2014. Prior to WAVE, he coached at Lighthouse Christian Academy, Patrick Henry High School, and East County Volleyball Academy, working with a variety of high school age groups.
Early in his coaching career, Nick discovered a deep passion for sharing his love of the sport and using his platform to mentor and teach life lessons to young athletes. His ultimate goal is to foster holistic development in players both on and off the court, emphasizing leadership, respect, accountability, self-care, and teamwork. He firmly believes in the ecological approach to coaching, creating an environment that encourages self-discovery and long-term skill retention.
In 2007, Nick graduated from SDSU with a bachelor's in Electrical Engineering, and currently, he works full-time as an Engineering Manager. His daily experience in technical problem-solving and interpersonal dynamics complements his distinct coaching style and ability to connect with players.
During his free time, Nick enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters, crafting artisan coffee, and honing his beach volleyball skills.
