This will be my 3rd season coaching with Cleveland. I have previously coached for Hillsboro Parks & Rec and the Beaverton Hoop YMCA, in addition to working several camps in the state of Oregon. I’ve worked both Damian Lillard & CJ’s camps as well in the summer months. I love basketball for the life lessons and life tools it can teach young kids. It also is great to see how the game can bring people together for a common goal. Unity! Fun Fact About Me: “I love bowling even though I’m not great at it. If anyone asks though, I will always say I’m the best!”

“I was born and raised in Portland, OR. I started playing basketball at 4 years old in a Salvation Army youth league. In high school, I played 3 years of Varsity Basketball at Central Catholic in southeast Portland. I currently work as a Team Attendant for the Portland Trail Blazers, where I assist players, coaches, and team staff with game-day needs. I love basketball because it builds relationships and it’s something you can do to get your mind off of everything else that may be going on in your life. Fun Fact About Me: My favorite player is Damian Lillard.

At the end of the day, the goal for me is to help develop the amazing student-athletes and foster a love for the game and ultimately strengthen communities through organized athletics. Fun Fact About Me: I still play video games and my username is available upon request.”
