I grew up in Duxbury, Massachusetts. After playing four years of lacrosse at Notre Dame, I moved west to San Diego to thaw out. I didn’t really have a plan but I knew that I just needed to get here and that I would figure it out. Soon after arriving, I connected with Alex Cade who had graduated a year before me at ND and was already in San Diego. After a few months of the SoCal good life, an opportunity presented itself to travel down under to Australia and New Zealand. I lived in a van and stayed with several friends of friends for nearly a year, exploring every nook and cranny of these two far off wonderlands. After this life changing adventure, I swore off my business degree and decided I was going to save the world and become a teacher. I returned to San Diego and began working with kids and coaching lacrosse. Lucky for me it’s not that easy to get a California teaching credential and after the first spring of coaching lacrosse, Alex and I started a summer league called South Swell. The South Swell organization quickly became a fraternity of east coast transplants and west coast locals who enjoyed coaching and spreading their love for lacrosse… and Nardo Ave was our headquarters…oh if those walls could talk. The company has taken a lot of twists and turns over the years and ultimately morphed into the Adrenaline that you know today. It’s been a blast helping grow the game out here in the wild, wild west and building a brand that lacrosse players all over the world can identify with.
What is your ideal day?
My ideal day includes a day at the beach in Del Mar with family and friends followed by a trip to my favorite pizza joint Bongiornos……..and maybe, just maybe, a stop at Baskin Robins on the way home.
