"I love to mentor and develop athletes.
I focus a lot more on personality over ability with what I teach.
Its more so I can pass forward the knowledge that was given to me for free growing up hoopin'.
I was always blessed to have basketball training, games, coaching, mentoring, gear, given to me for free.
I'm just lucky that I'm getting paid to coach and mentor here in Australia so I'm always thankful."
