Can you tell us more about your basketball path growing up to now?
Growing up, I played multiple sports but baseball and basketball was my favorite. Basketball eventually became the only thing I cared about and wanted to do. I grew up training myself until people noticed my game and I got proper training from coaches and trainers. I didn’t play high school because the school I went to. Too many people and coaches didn’t realize potential they had in me and different players so I missed out. I went to college try to play again but got sick and had knee problems. When I came back full healed Covid hit and since then I been lookin for a new school or home to play for. I love the game got a passion for it.
How can you describe your game? What are your main strengths on the court?
My game is good. I’m a team player but also a sorcerer. My strengths are passing, mid range shooting, rebounding, slashing, and defensive stops I hustle for everything and play wit my heart. When it’s crunch time my team usually trusts me wit the ball to get it done or close. I’m always hungry out there.
Have you ever traveled abroad for basketball?
Yes I love the experience. Different going to another state and showing your skills to different coaches possibly watching or anybody really it’s a great feeling to play from home and get some what type of exposure.
What kind of opportunity are you looking for?
Any opportunity that comes to my door. Professional overseas basketball has been a dream for me since a kid or the NBA. Any league in USA or outside of it I know to be grateful for cause I know it’s a start.

What do you expect from your pro basketball career overseas?
Greatness, proper coaching, new moves new mindset, new skills, anything I’m a empty book wit a couple pages filled out taking in any information or anything I can use on my game to work on it better and be better than good or decent.
To conclude, do you have something else to tell?
Grateful to answer these questions and have the chance to maybe change my life around into something I’ve been praying for. I just want to play, I love the game, I love the feeling, I love the adrenaline, the rushing, the hype it’s the best feeling in the world. I know a lot good hoopers and players that’s hungry for it but I’ve been starving for too long. And all I want to do is get the chance to show what I can do.
