He played for the University of Southern California from 1997-2000 and joined the U.S. Men’s National Team in 2001. He was a member of the 2004 Olympic men’s volleyball team that finished fourth. In 2005 he was USA Volleyball’s nominee for SportsMan of the Year after guiding the team to gold medals in the America’s Cup, FIVB World Championship Qualifying Tournament and NORCECA Continental Championships and a silver medal in the World Grand Champions Cup.
