Brad is very excited to join his wife Dawn in coaching 12’s with the Dakine Ohana! Growing up in Indiana, Brad played many sports but excelled in football and archery. In 2011, he and Dawn moved to Seattle and wanted to find a sport that they could do together. His introduction to the sport was playing co-ed 2’s beach volleyball and was hooked instantly.
Although Brad has only been playing volleyball for 6 years, he has developed a love and passion for the game like none other. He has played in countless leagues and tournaments in this short amount of time. Brad is entering his 4th season of coaching at the U12 Club level. He understands the positive impacts organized sports can play in a child’s life and is excited about the opportunity to provide the type of mentoring that he received at that age. To become a more rounded player and coach, Brad became a WOA Certified Volleyball Official and is currently finishing up his 2nd High School Season.
Brad and Dawn recently moved to Alki so when they are not coaching, you can expect to see them down on the beach. Brad has a B.S in Computer Information Systems and is a Senior Systems Engineer at a Kirkland based Software Company.
