Welcome to my website


I have designed this website for several purposes. First, I want it to be a resource for coaches and players to use for improving their knowlege and skills in the game of basketball. Secondly, I want to share with you about my journeys as a coach, including my time in India as the national coach and my experience coaching in the NBA Development League. I will continue to develop this site now that I am back in the United States as a college basketball coach. (Northwest Nazarene University) It is my desire to share life lessons with you that I have learned by experience or through others that have made a positive impact on my life.
