Jeff grew up in Santa Barbara as a highly ranked junior in Southern California, played on a Santa Barbara High School Boys Tennis Team that won four straight CIF championships (without losing a match), and was a top player at Santa Barbara City College, Westmont College, and attended the University of California Santa Barbara. Jeff has had the opportunity to play against many great tennis players as a youth (including the Bryan Brothers) and understands what it takes to succeed in tennis.
While growing at SBTC Jeff has had four children with his wonderful wife. You’ll see three of them on and off the courts. Tennis has come full circle in Jeff’s life. Jeff enjoys working with all levels of players but loves watching beginning to intermediate level players grow and learn. Jeff is happy to be part of the SBTC team.
