Bio: I have been conducting Professional Soccer Analysis since June 2012 and most recently returned to the world of coaching soccer after a 14 year break, I am an Assistant Coach with Forest Grove High School Varsity boys Soccer. I currently offer up my own brand of soccer analysis (Possession with Purpose) covering the English Premier League, Major League Soccer, the Bundesliga, La Liga, World Cup, and UEFA Champions League. My recent achievements include being an invited guest speaker at the 2014 World Conference on Science and Soccer and the 2017 World Conference on Science and Soccer where I presented my analysis known as Possession with Purpose. This includes analyzing current team performance statistics as well as conducting predictive analysis based upon those current trends. My approach has been published in England, 2016, by Routledge, Taylor, and Francis - International Research in Science and Soccer II. As a Regional Emmy Award winner for episodic sports series I feature as a Portland Timbers soccer pundit on Comcast Sports Northwest "Soccer City PDX" TV show, co-host two podcasts recognized by Major League Soccer while also dabbling in NPSL, PDL, USL, NASL, MLS, EPL, USMNT, and USWNT. I also offer up analysis about the Portland Timbers as well as other MLS and European football clubs. Occasionally I also offer articles with the Columbian Newspaper, Prost Amerika, and PTFC Collective. My background in soccer started in the United Kingdom, where, as an American, I was the General Manager and President of an English Youth Football Club just outside of Thetford, England. (Barnham Bulldogs FC). I also served as a head coach for U-11/12's, and obtained my English FA Youth License Certification through Norwich City FC. Upon returning to the U.S., I was an Assistant Coach and eventually a Head Coach within the Ajax Youth Football Club organization, Kent Washington. I retain COPYRIGHT on The Possession With Purpose ideas and research published on these sites.
