My life mission is to uplift and inspire humans to develop holistically to contribute to the greater good of humanity. Over the past few years, I’ve constantly been reinventing myself and how I want to spend my time on earth.

Instead of constantly seeking “success,” I’m slowing down, letting life come to me, and living through my strengths. As a high school athlete, I received the award for Most Inspirational 5x for both basketball and baseball.

After taking a break from sports for a few years to do college things, I found myself coaching a 7th-grade boys basketball team lacking experience. It was a transition for me to realize sports aren’t all about winning.

Since moving to LA (8/21), I have been diving into the youth sports coaching world, and it feels right. It feels natural for me to coach youth basketball. I love teaching the kids basketball is a WE, not me game, and keeping them active during a time of stress for many kids.

One of my favorite things about being a human is sharing the wisdom I learn through experience. It’s the reason I create content on the internet and host the podcast Bridging Impact. In-depth conversations about leadership, teamwork and human development give me the energy I need to continue striving to become the best human being I can be.

If any of this resonates with you, give me a follow and let's connect. I'm a big believer in the quote, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to far, go together." -African Proverb
