Jb was born and raised in Durban, South Africa and he moved to the USA at the age of 19 to play college soccer in South Carolina.
Jb began coaching in his last year of college, "Soccer gave me so much joy and brought me to the US." When asked about why he choose to coach he said, " It felt only right to give back, once I started, I fell in love!"
JB lives in Kamuela, on the Big Island with his wife, Heather and their "fur babies", Ginger and Kiwi. Alongside his role as director of communications for KCSA, Jb is also the Boys' soccer head coach at Hawai'i Preparatory Academy.
Coach JB loves Lasagna, meat and marshmallows... not necessarily in that order! His favorite futbol/soccer team is Liverppol FC. "Always have been a fan", he said. "I am so happy they won their league after a 30 year drought! YNWA!"
