My sports journey
The foundation of my sports journey is in basketball and track & field. I’m proud to have been a member of Charlottesville High School (Virginia) teams and experience a variety of district, regional and state level championships & accolades.
I was blessed to play college basketball at the United States Naval Academy. This was an amazing experience, culminating in an NCAA “March Madness” tournament appearance in 1994. After college, I’ve played basketball in numerous semi-professional leagues and tournaments domestically and overseas.
Through these experiences, I learned numerous life lessons about: servant-leadership, relationship building, teamwork, discipline, integrity, consistency, and adaptability. These have shaped my perspectives and how I engage the world around me.
This now serves as my platform for the coaching and training that I do. I have been honored to serve so many athletes in different sports at all levels to help them achieve their full potential.
