Steve was born and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida. He started playing tennis with his father at the age of 8. As a child, Steve was very active in many sports, but throughout High School, he excelled in tennis and swimming and participated in them the most. Steve became a teaching pro at age 19 and is a USPTA teaching professional.
Steve has been the Director of Tennis at two racquet clubs in Florida: Aquarina Racquet Club in Melbourne Beach where he worked for eight years and Ocean Racquet Club in Daytona Beach Shores where he worked for two years. He has worked with many successful ladies teams and has coached a very successful Junior Summer Camp.
Steve came to New York to coach Sleepy Hollow Country Club in Briarcliff Manor for the summer. He liked the area so much that he has decided to stay in the area full time.
When he is not on the tennis court, Steve enjoys anything that gets him outside – swimming, scuba diving, snow skiing or just a long walk around NYC.
