After graduating with a degree in English Education, Nathan decided to combine his passion for rowing with his love of mentoring and teaching, and continued on at Purdue crew as the novice men's coach, where he led his crews to medals at SIRAs and Dad Vails. After Purdue, Nathan moved to Washington, DC, where he coached masters and junior rowers for two years. Following DC, he was hired as The College of William and Mary’s Director of Rowing, and during his four-year tenure, coached his crews to medals at the Head of the Charles and Dad Vail Regattas, while raising money through a newly created summer rowing camp and increased alumni donations for a second full time varsity rowing coach.

During his first year with Norcal, he led the varsity women to a gold medal at youth nationals in the women’s lightweight 2x. In the summer of 2013 he switched squads and became Norcal’s varsity men’s coach, and subsequently led his team to another gold medal at youth nationals, this time in the men’s lightweight 4+ event.
