I have been around the game of basketball in multiple capacities for the entirety of my life. My father was a basketball coach for over 25 years at the high school, collegiate, and professional level. It was in this space where I learned to love the game of basketball. I have experience as both a player and a coach at the collegiate level. I played collegiately at an NAIA DI school, St. Gregory’s University from 2009-2014. For the past seven years I have been coaching at the NCAA DI level in Women’s Basketball.

Most recently I was the Director of Video and Creative Content at the University of Alabama (19-21) where we made it to the 2nd Round of the NCAA Tournament in 2021. Prior to Alabama, I spent three years as an Assistant Coach at the University of the Incarnate Word (16-19), where I was one of the youngest assistant coaches in the country and helped the team win their most conference games since transitioning to NCAA Division I in 2017. I began my coaching career as a Graduate Assistant at the University of Arkansas (14-16) where we made it to the 2nd Round of the NCAA Tournament in 2014.

My playing career is one that I would not replace, despite three ACL tears in my left knee. I went on to finish my career as a 3 Time NAIA Academic All-American, Top 20 in program history in Total Assists, 2014 NAIA Champion of Character Award recipient, and Team Captain my senior year for a team that made an NAIA Final Four Appearance.

What I love about NCSA is that I know we will work tirelessly for families and student-athletes to help them pursue and achieve their dreams of playing collegiate sports. There is nothing greater than seeing young people reach their goals and aspirations!

My wife Ashley and I reside in Edmond, Oklahoma with our daughter Charlee. Outside of hoops, I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, and golf.
