What is your most memorable experience/result as a coach: Kanak Jha’s original coach from his very beginning in 2006 as a novice player.  In only 14 years, developed Kanak to become the 2016, 2017,2018 & 2019 US Men’s Singles Champion, Team USA’s youngest Olympian in the 2016 Rio Olympics and Bronze medalists in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Singles. After all the domestic success together with Kanak Jha, the most rewarding fact is that he is now pursuing a full time professional career with a Singles World Ranking high at # 22 in table tennis internationally.

Also helped develop many other young US players to become National Champions & Olympians.
