His future aspirations had their start when at 15 years old he read John Wooden’s They Call Me Coach. He immediately knew he would be a teacher and coach. Born and raised in the South Bay, Tommy is a graduate of Redondo Union High School and Loyola Marymount University.
Tommy currently teaches Government and also coaches the girls 14-1 team for the Southern California Volleyball Club.
"When we moved to the South Bay, we were blessed to have Tommy as our daughter’s coach and introduction to SoCal volleyball and couldn’t have had a more positive, rewarding experience. Soon after we sought Tommy’s coaching for our younger son and daughter. There is no better coach to introduce your child to this amazing life long sport. Not only does Tommy provide the best fundamental coaching of the sport, he instills values that your child can carry with them for a lifetime."
