Growing up, Steve was considered a leader in American tennis. In the juniors, he practiced and battled with all the greats: Sampras, Chang, Agassi & Courier...some of which he has winning records against. Unfortunately, a major skiing accident ended his career abruptly, and he retired from pro tennis at an early age. 

Steve has over 25 years of coaching experience and his mentors include such greats as: Sam Match, Tony Trabert, Ralph Gonzales, Craig Heinberg, Ian Russel, Larry Mousouris & Nels Van Patten. 

Steve works with top juniors and adults of all levels. Many consider Steve a "technical wizard" and he can immediately dissect the glitch in any stroke.

​Steve was the youngest player ever to earn a wildcard into the Countrywide Los Angeles Open UCLA at age 17 in 1985. At age 45, Steve won the 45's National Hardcourt title in 2013 (w/ partner Jeff Tarango) Currently, Steve is an equity partner and former CEO of TennisKids.
