When and how did you start playing basketball?
I picked up my first basketball at the age of 4 years old. I use to grab the ball and walk up to someone for them to pick me up so I could dunk on my little basketball goal. Every since then it has been an everyday thing to pick up a ball.
Can you tell us more about your basketball path growing up to now?
Growing up, my basketball career has had a few bumps and bruises itself but that’ll never stop me or make me quit. I’ve played in a wrac league at a young age, AAU with many teams, high school, community college, and also semi pro. I won many awards and championships and feel like I have plenty more to accomplish. With each level I’ve had many success and my next goal is to start my path to NBA or G-League.

How can you describe your game? What are your main strengths on the court?
My game as some would call it would be a high flying playmaking 3pt specialists. Not a shot I can’t make once I pass half court. Easily will grab 10+ rebounds thanks to my god given athleticism.
Have you ever traveled abroad for basketball?
Been to many states and played ball, I also attended the Europrobasket Academy in Valencia, Spain. That was an amazing experience and would love another opportunity to showcase my talents around the world.
What kind of opportunity are you looking for?
Any, basketball is and have been my life as long as I can remember and just to be waking up and participating in it is a blessing for me.
What do you expect from your pro basketball career overseas?
I expect someone out there to recognize the possible potential in me and give me the opportunity of a lifetime to do something I love to do.
To conclude, do you have something else to tell?
Willing to accept any offer and work my way from the ground up. I know guys all over the world feel the same way about receiving an offer from a team but the difference with me is I work hard everyday so when my name is called I’ll be ready.
