In high school I was one of the Top 11 Soccer Recruits Nationally when I earned a scholarship to the D-I University of Massachusetts-Amherst in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

After High School I earned a Division I scholarship to the University of Massachusetts-Amherst in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

My time in Amherst was a great one earning numerous awards including: Team Captain in 1997, All Atlantic 10 in 1994-1997. I was selected to the All New England team in 1995 and 1996. I graduated and remain the schools All Time Saves Leader with 384 as well as the 3rd in All Time Shutouts with 34. I capped my collegiate career with a selection to the NCAA Senior All Star Game in 1998.
