BIO

Hi! I’m Desmond. I’m currently a senior at the University of Houston. I have been a swim instructor for the past four years and I have been coaching for the past six years. I swam competitively during summer league and in high school where I was the team captain. I taught myself to swim when I was six years old and I’ve been in the water ever since. I love swimming because I think it is a great outlet for kids and a fun activity that helps us stay in shape. A fun fact about me is that I have been an uncle since I was born, so I happen to be great with kids! I like to use a gentle approach with teaching kids because I think the best way children learn is when they are comfortable and feel safe.  I am excited to be working with AquaMobile this summer and look forward to producing a lot of great swimmers!
