I pitched for two years at Temple University from 2012-2013 and at North Carolina State University in 2014. At Temple I was named to the All-Big 5 team in 2013 and made the 2014 All-ACC Academic Team while at NC State. After the 2014 season, I was drafted by the Houston Astros in the 37th round and spent four years in the organization, including two years at AA Corpus Christi in the Texas League.
In the fall of 2014, I coached a 16u Tri-State Arsenal travel team for players who aspired to play baseball collegiately. I also did pitching lessons at Titus Sports Academy (Newark, DE) in the winter (2015-2016).
I am now the pitching coach at Neumann University and I do lessons at the Maplezone Sports Institute in Aston, PA.

The most important part for me is to communicate with the player on what they feel they need to work on to get better as a pitcher. Rather than going straight into instructing, I like to watch the pitcher throw first so I can give input at the end of the lesson and for the future. For every lesson afterwards, I like to focus on one aspect of pitching to work on, as opposed to giving the student/pitcher several things to think about.
I have done several lessons in the winter during my time as a player. I worked with pitchers between 12-17 years old, all who had different goals and needs to get better. I also spent time coaching a travel team in the fall.
While I was a player, I enjoyed doing lessons and coaching during the offseason. When my playing career was finished in May 2017, I still had a passion for baseball. I have learned a lot from playing at two D1 Universities and playing at one of the highest levels of professional baseball. I want to use all that I have learned from my experiences and help other players reach the goals and aspirations that they have.
Look for the instructor that best fits you and can help you the most in whatever aspect of pitching you want to improve on.
