FAQs


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

My analysis of a player is continuous. To start, I look at ball handling, passing, and 3-level shot-making (layup, mid-range, 3 point shot). I also believe in playing both ends of the floor, so I analyze defensive stance. After establishing a base, I develop individual skills and court awareness gradually to incorporate team interaction. The canvas of a player's game must include development of the mind, so I ensure players understand the why to their training before advancing.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

In my family, basketball truly is life. My playing resume includes high school, college, U.S. Army overseas, semi-professional in the Independent Basketball Association (IBA), as well as professional 3on3 in Redbull 3x. My educational background is in Health Administration, and I also have a USA Basketball certificate for youth coaching.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching in the process of my own training. I have always sought out different learning points and strategies to get ahead of the next guy. Over time, other players I played with that saw my game and body developing asked me what I was doing. Eventually, it led to me training other guys who were in the gym with me, and some coaching opportunities.


What types of students have you worked with?

Throughout the years I have trained high school, college, and professional basketball players in the United States and Canada. I have coached across most youth age groups from 6-19 years old.


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

Students should look for a teacher that is available for questions outside of the gym, provides a vision for the athlete's end goal, and teaches all aspects of the game. There is more to basketball than dribbling and shooting.


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

Players should consider two things when preparing to work with a trainer... how far they want to take their game (i.e college, professional) and how much free time they are willing to sacrifice to be successful. Training and learning cannot not only happen during personal sessions in order to get desired results.
