BIO & Experience

I've been a gym rat my whole life, both in the weight room and on the court. Everyone is born with natural gifts, some more than others, but it's the athletes who put the time in that last In the sport. That is what I believe and how I approach my training. My love for the game started since I was very young. I always wanted to be a hooper and feel blessed that I've been able to play on the professional level. The journey is a long, up and down road. The game honestly will give you the highest highs and the lowest lows, but those lows test your character in a way only the game can, and it makes you stronger. I've played 4 years of high school, 4 years of college, and going into my 4th year of professional. I believe I am a great example of what time in a gym can do for a player's career. I went from being a big man in high school to a guard on the pro level, and I credit it to the countless hours in the gym. Basketball is such a great game, in my opinion, because it is an endless road of trying to master the game because there are so many nuances of the game. Training is something I love to do because it feels good to teach the next generation of hoopers things I've learned along the way.
