My love for basketball goes beyond just playing it. I love the concepts of the game, the physical aspect, and the sense of community while playing. I have played basketball and competed at high levels throughout my life. On top of playing, I have been coaching my younger brother since he was in kindergarten. I have coached him in numerous leagues and currently coach his school team at Ocean Knoll Elementary School, in Encinitas, California. He is currently 10 years old and plays on multiple teams, including a team for kids that are older than him by two years. With that being said, I enjoy teaching fundamentals and basketball intellect to kids and seeing how it translates into their game on the court. I like to focus on their strengths, while exploiting and bettering their weaknesses – creating a better overall skill level.
