Founder & Director of Basketball Operations
Basecamp Basketball

Basketball is a world sport!  Many new leagues and associations are being created worldwide everyday! Yet there are many places where basketball hasn't been taught and played. It is my goal to seek out countries where basketball is new or wanting help to see it grow.  In response, I have developed this Beyond the Basketball Program to train ballers how to better assimilate into the worldwide basketball community as influential players, coaches, and/or as academy directors.

I have been coaching basketball for over 20 years at the youth, college, national, and semi-professional levels. I have coached both in the United States and in various countries overseas. I have had the privilege of starting two successful academies (India & USA). My certification in Sports Management comes from the United States Sports Academy (Daphne, AL –USA)


But that's enough about me, because my focus is really about assisting ballers to become skillful and role model players worldwide!
