About this pro

I’ve been involved with all aspects of youth basketball over the past 12 years. I started with officiating recreational leagues for the City of Lakewood and University Place. I was also a gym supervisor for Metro Parks Tacoma. Which got me interested in coaching and I took off from there. I now run my own non profit called Hard Work Beats Talent out of the eastside of Tacoma, and I’m USA youth basketball development certified. I’m a firm believer in effort while pushing for your goals no matter what they are. Basketball is a tool that can teach you a lot about perseverance in life. By combing the two in detail during sessions kids will understand that goals are earned and not given. You can check out my work on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Hard-Work-Beats-Talent-Sports-1528854310744523/

I enjoy being in the gym with kids who have love for the game and aren’t afraid to step outside of their comfort zones. I enjoy correlating basketball to life outside of the sport. I love showing kids how to deal with adversity and inspiring them to never quit and always give %100 in whatever they do.

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

Gauging their skill set and passion for the game. I put them through a series of simple drills depending on age and ability. Also getting to know what their hobbies are outside of basketball.
