How has basketball impacted your life?
Basketball has been a passion of mine since I was in the third grade. It shaped who i am today and taught me valuable lessons in communication, leadership, and teamwork (both on and off the court).

Idol as a Coach:
Rick Pitino (Louisville) and Peter Stefonowich (My HS Coach)

When did you realize you wanted to be a basketball coach?
After being injured and unable to play I realized that I needed to be involved in the game somehow, so I began helping out at my high school and training players. I found that I really teaching and motivating players to get better, so I decided to pursue coaching as a career. I want to make my passion contagious and use it to help players reach their potential.

What are you looking forward to about coaching at Hoop Group Elite?
Helping players reach their goals and be seen my college coaches is why I love coaching at Elite camp. Watching kids improve, even in such a short period of time, is what makes being a camp coach so great.
