Positions (alt): Utl, RP
College: Claremont McKenna College
I played D3 College baseball for Claremont McKenna College in Los Angeles California. After college, I spent a year playing in the United States with the Los Angeles Legends (LABL) and the Los Angeles Raptors (PCBL). In 2021, I began my overseas career as a pitcher for UVV Utrecht in the Honkbal Overgangsklasse in the Netherlands.
In college my fastball was 83-85 MPH, but after graduating, I increased my velocity to 88-91 and added a curveball. Between the PCBL and LABL (including playoffs), I went 7-1 while posting a 1.08 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, 12.6 K/9, 3.6 BB/9 over 45 innings with 70 strikeouts. I was named Championship CO-MVP of the PCBL and Championship MVP of the LABL. In 2021, I pitched for UVV Utrecht posting a 2.79 ERA over 38.2 innings as both a starting and relief pitcher.
I throw Fastball, Changeup, and Curveball. The fastball sits around 88-91 with movement. The changeup is my next best pitch with good control and movement.

Overseas Baseball Goals:
I’m looking for a team where I can have a large impact on the mound. My goal is challenge myself and become the best player I can be. I would eventually like to compete in some of the top overseas leagues such as in Japan, Korea, or Australia.
