Personal

4-year college baseball starter. 2-year starter for Genesee Rapids in NYCBL. Helped lead Indiana Wesleyan University to a Conference Championship and Regional Appearance in 2018. Player/coach with Mt. St. Guibert Phoenix of the Belgium Baseball League for the 2019 summer. Player/coach with Western Bulldogs in Queensland, Australia for the 2019/2020 season. *Most recent* Starting SS and lead off hitter for the Coomera Cubs on the Gold Coast, Australia 2020/2021. 14 games in Melbourne with the Doncaster Dragon in Melbourne Victoria April-June 2021

Abilities summary: I have always been a strong lead off hitter. I get on base a lot, drive the gaps, and hit home runs. Love learning from other good hitters and sharing my knowledge as well. I’m aggressive and heads up on the bases. I play to win. I live for embracing the battle with my teammates and also keeping things light and fun on and off the field. As a shortstop I’m smooth, turn quick double plays, and can definitely make the throw deep in the 6 hole. I can definitely play any position on the field because of my athleticism I have listed all that I have played since starting my overseas career. I’ve worked hard on my pitching and will compete for my team to get that win on the mound. I throw a lot of 2 seam fastballs (80-84) changeups, and have developed a slider. I will get outs and soft contact. As a coach I really enjoy helping younger players learn and understand the game. My strength as a coach is building confidence in players. Making sure they understand how to make adjustments. It has been extremely fulfilling seeing players I’ve coached make great strides and gain a lot of confidence. I speak French well, especially baseball terms and can teach the game to players effectively who have minimal English skills
