At the very beginning when I started playing, I played as both a position player and a pitcher. When I went to Pôle France, I specialized as a pitcher, but until last year I played as a pitcher as well as a second baseman with my club. Now, I don’t work much on defense anymore, but I can still hit and continue to play.

I am someone who likes to talk about everything in general, not just baseball. I believe that by talking with teammates, one learns the most. Therefore, during a game, I enjoy talking with the players, and I am someone who encourages a lot because I have noticed over the years that the more you encourage, the more the team raises its level of play. On the team, I would not be a leader but rather a player who tries to understand why certain things work or do not work.


Career highlights

I was selected to the île de France team (2016-2020) where we won the France tournament.
in 2020 I was nominated best pitcher of the tournament, and with this team we went to the Little League Europe.  Since then I’ve played with d1 team of Montigny and last year we won the challenge de France and we finished 2nd in the championship.
This year we are going to the European championship.



As a coach, I like to share my experience with young players and give them as much as I can in terms of baseball techniques and game vision. I am a rather calm coach; I like to take my time to teach the younger ones because with them, you have to go step by step to avoid making them lose interest in baseball.
Since I started playing in Division 1, I coach whenever I can. At first, I helped with training, and little by little, the club gave me more responsibilities, such as coaching a team for an international tournament in Barcelona and coaching games in the championship. I have also spent a lot of time working with pitchers during practices and games, teaching them to understand batters in order to make outs more easily and to understand their own motions so they can work on them at home.


Overseas Goals

 would like to go overseas because I am someone who loves to travel, discover new countries, and new cultures, and I love playing baseball. So, I would like to continue my career abroad to discover new ways of playing, to keep learning new things about the game, and to see what level I can reach.
