Jeff has an infectious enthusiasm for rowing that inspires his athletes to work hard and strive for excellence. He started rowing on the Hudson river in Poughkeepsie, New York, in 1975. He rowed at Syracuse University, where he won 2 IRA medals. After college, he started a rowing program in Albany that has continued to grow and flourish. Jeff progressed to master’s rowing and has won over 50 medals in both national and international Master’s rowing events, including 2 wins in the Head of the Charles Regatta. Jeff began coaching after college and split his time between working as a stockbroker and a rowing coach. He rebuilt teams, such as the US Merchant Marine Academy at King’s Point and St. Anthony's High School on Long Island, to national prominence. Jeff later moved to Boston and was an assistant coach at MIT and Northeastern Universities. He had a hiatus from coaching to work at Gentle Giant Moving and returned to coaching in 2011. Since then, he has coached at Wayland-Weston, Bromfield-Acton-Boxboro, and the Windsor School. At Riverside Boat Club, he has coached both junior athletes and the high-performance group during summer and fall programs, including several athletes who have been selected for junior national teams and an athlete who won World Championships last year. Jeff is married to Lisa, who is also a rower. They enjoy rowing, canoeing, paddle boarding, and archery.
