About this pro

There is no substitute for the basics, the fundamentals are the foundation each player builds their game on. Mastering them is a vital process in your development. It not only enhances your ability to simplify advanced skills but also gives you the confidence to compete and push through mental barriers as your game continues to expand. At patientlyAmbitious, LLC we challenge our students physically and mentally daily to prepare them for the battle on and off the court. 

When I was a youth in Grand Rapids we didn't have guys come back and teach us how to get to the next level, we just did the best we could with what we had. It brings me great joy to be able to share the knowledge we have learned over the past 16 years with this game. The more knowledge we share a spread the more we can uplift our communities and families!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When meeting a new student I like to give them a worksheet that outlines age, grade, previous experience, and basketball goals. From there I schedule a time with them to come in and join a workout session at no cost so they can get a hands on expirience with training with PatientlyAmbitious. 

If we both feel it is a good fit I then share my schedule with the parents and find the frequency at which they would like to train and their availability.

How did you get started teaching?

When I look back at my career I have always been teaching the game. 1 year before I traveled to Australia to play and coach I began interning with my then trainer Kai Wells who worked with many NBA G-League, Overseas, College, and high school stand outs. We also worked with the very developmental stages hosting various camps and clinics in the greater Atlanta area for the youth, ages 5 - 14. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Ive worked with beginners age 5 all the way up to Pro level players who play in the NBA G-League

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

My advice to any student looking to hire a basketball trainer is to first assess what your basketball goals are. As a mentor in this game I can only show you what it takes to reach the next level. It is up to the player to apply the lessons. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should first give themselves an honest assessment of their strengths and weakness as a player and person. 

What skills are you best at?

what skills do you need to work on most?

How much time to I spend improving my game on my own?

How do I respond to constructive critisms?
