I was raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, where I was All-State in High School Basketball. I played two years after that at Salt Lake Community College before transferring to the University of Hawaii. After graduation I was invited to the NBA Combine, and also played in two NBA summer leagues, both with the New York Knicks. Also had workouts with the Utah Jazz and Sacramento Kings. Meanwhile I was starting off my pro career in Europe, a career which would last ten years. I played three years in Latvia, where I would receive dual citizenship and play for their National team. A year a piece in Germany, France, and Belgium. And my final 4 years in Italy. After moving to Las Vegas 3 years ago I was a basketball trainer at The Combine, a basketball training facility run by some ex NBA guys.
