Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I am seeking to encourage more tennis players to access our courts at NYSC-Cobble Hill and play in our late morning Round Robins. Personally, I am a die-hard tennis fan and a certified Pilates instructor. I cross-train my tennis students with Pilates. I love to learn.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
All time is probably McEnroe for his artistry. Agassi for his personal journey. Federer for his balletic grace and Nadal for his bull-fighting tenacity.
