College: Trevecca Nazarene University NCAA Division II
I enjoyed playing Division II collegiate baseball in the United States (2014-2018) and am very motivated to continue my playing career overseas. In the summer of 2017, I played first base with the London Mets, who went on to become champions of the National Baseball League of the British Baseball Federation. I also played with the Mets in the 2017 Federations Cup Tournament in Sweden (which included teams from Spain, Poland, Lithuania, and Sweden). This past year (2018-19), I played with the Canterbury Vikings (first base) in the New South Wales (NSW) Baseball League (First Division) in Australia and we won the state championship.
In terms of what I bring to the table, I would characterize myself as a power-hitting first-baseman who can also fill the designated hitter slot. In addition, I can play corner outfield and eat up some innings as a relief pitcher, if needed. I am very coachable and easy to get along with, have demonstrated persistence in overcoming a few injuries earlier in my college career, and enjoy being part of a team and doing whatever I can to make a positive contribution.
