ABOUT ME

A year from now, you will wish you started today!

As a professional Basketball Instructor, I have become well-known and respected throughout the Ottawa area and Eastern Canada. As a young boy growing up in Ottawa, I loved and played all sports. I was a standout soccer player and played at a very high level. I was first introduced to basketball at the age of 12 and it was then I knew this is what I wanted to do. As I got older I dedicated all my time to training on basketball with hopes to make my high school team. Going into grade 9 at Colonel By high school, I faced a lot of adversity in my first year of basketball because it was all still new to me. I had lots of catching up & learning to do as a point guard. I spent the summer going into grade 10 training each day and watching film to learn and understand the game. By grade 12 I was a 4-time city all-star, and one of the top point guards in the city with numerous accolades. 

 

Fast forward a few years later & I was an RSEQ silver medalist, RSEQ Champion & 6th place at Nationals with honorable mentions & awards. The 5 years at Bishops University taught me a lot as a player. Being a leader, time management, self-discipline, and how to deal with adversity. After my university career, I was fortunate enough to play a couple of years professionally overseas. After playing my last season I decided it was time to put up the sneakers and help someone else reach their dreams!

 

 I have developed my own unique training methods, all aimed at syncing the body and mind in preparation for competing against the best. I believe that a rigorous training system not only develops physical strength but also the mental stamina required to compete at the highest levels of the game. I am constantly reading & learning to keep up with the latest training techniques and methodologies, and consistently push my athletes to the limit.

Over the last few years, I have been able to travel around the world, where I have been able to learn from NBA players, NBA & professional coaches, top trainers and have had the privilege to train many elite players that have gone off to play NCAA, USPORTS, CCAA & Professionally. I have also started a new competitive basketball program for "U17 & U19" boys here in Ottawa. As basketball continues to grow at a rapid rate in Canada I am looking forward to helping as many athletes as possible reach their basketball dreams & goals!
