I have always been very involved in athletics, tracing back to a very young age. Competitive swimming was one of my favorite extra curricular activities in which I excelled in, primarily in the Braest Stroke. I joined my first swim team at the age of 11 during the summer where I joined a summer league for my local community pool. Every year since then, up to the age of 18, I joined that summer league and from ages 14 and 18 I never failed to qualify for The All-Stars, where the best swimmers around the Houston area competed amongst one another. I attended Alief Taylor high school, where I swam for four years and became captain my junior year. Come my senior year, I had the honor of winning our Most Valuable swimmer award and set a school record in the 100m Breast Stroke. I am currently attending Lonestar College where I plan to transfer to The University of Houston in hopes of graduating with a Bachelor's in Kinesiology. Hopefully, as you're reading this, you can see that I have a genuine passion for not only swimming but everything athletic related. SwimJim for me, has been the perfect platform where I can convey my knowledge and experience in swimming to anyone willing to learn. Whether it be a young child or a grown adult, I take pride in making sure that the individual gets the most out of their lessons. I always try to excel and be the best at whatever I do and it is no different when I am teaching swim lessons at SwimJim. I believe that I am not only teaching my students swimming, but in addition, a life saving skill.
