  • It’s more than just hoops.
  • I GET IT! (the grind, the hurdles, etc.)
  • I create tangible differences in your game.
  • I still play at a high level and continue to find new ways to get better.
  • I produce results. I have helped and will continue to help athletes reach their personal athletic goals.

My passion is simple, I want to give what I never had. I feel it is my obligation to take what I've learned in both successes and failures and relate that to the next generation in a way that creates a meaningful long-term relationship that includes but goes well beyond their athletic goals. Achieving the goal of each kid's best life is the true end result.
