My knowledge best and not skipping the minor details that make the world of a difference separates me from the competition. I am not just a trainer but also a mentor, and will help out any way I can through a athlete's life journey
Being able to see the development happen in real time. Helping somebody get from point A to B and reaching that next level is very rewarding for me. It also helps that I love to play basketball.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Connecting with the parents and athlete on a personal level is always the first step. Building a relationship is the basis of any communication we have.
1. First and foremost I would complete an evaluation session to see where the prospect is talent/skill-wise. Find what we need to build on, tweak, or change altogether.
2. From the evaluation create a plan that tailors to the athlete and their current skill set.
1 3. Go over the plan with all parties involved and get their input. Then follow what was decided on and get results!

All types. From elite to beginner. I enjoy working with all levels because all of them have their advantages.
