When and how did you start playing basketball?

I probably started playing basketball at age 7. I said I probably because watching my first basketball game on TV I just fell in love with it. Also, my older brother who also plays is a big fan. This made me know this is what I want to do and make a career out of it.

Can you tell us more about your basketball path growing up to now?

I played my highschool basketball at science & technology, which is here in my hometown. I played there for 4 years, from 2009 to 2013 (the year I graduated). I’d say I had an okay highschool experience playing. It could have been better but we learn & grow as we get older. 2014 is my first year at this junior college called Springfield tech. I played my first college ball for which was a good season, solid season. I’ll say we were pretty good and we’re nationally recognized beating top rank teams in the country. The year after, I didn’t play. It was tough trying to focus on school and basketball. So I made the decision just to stop going and try to pursue my career another way. From that point, I took time off worked on my craft, literally worked on everything to be a better me and player. I came back I believe in 2016 or 2017 to play professionally in the ABA league here in America, which I took off to jump start my career and I currently still play in. This season, we got switch to a bigger & better league called the east coast league, which has not started yet . The name of the team I play for is called “the western mass zombies”. We were nationally ranked also last season, as one of the top teams in the country.

How can you describe your game? What are your main strengths on the court?

I describe my game as a shot creator and good defender. Also I am very good at getting others involved and finding the open man. But my main strengths are shooting, getting to the rim and defense I’ll say. I am a combo guard, I can play the one & two position. I am also very athletic too at 6’3.

Have you ever traveled abroad for basketball?

I never traveled abroad, I only traveled here in America. But the goal is to travel across the waters for sure, or maybe even the G-League, something that I’m interested in too.

What kind of opportunity are you looking for?

I’m just looking to get my foot in that door to take off and be great.

What do you expect from your pro basketball career overseas?

I expect to just have a very good experience playing over the waters and just have fun doing what I love to do. And hopefully, that will open more doors for me.

To conclude, do you have something else to tell?

I am just a Springfield born & raised kid trying to show what I can do at the high level and pursue my career further.
