I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. I played HS Basketball at Saint Ignatius College Preparatory, College Basketball at Boston College, Professionally in Buenos Aires, Argentina and various European Countries, including Italy.
I have played, coached/mentored and scouted many levels of Basketball Players over the past several decades.
My resume/cv is compact and comprehensive in both education and the team sport of fundamental basketball. I have played and mastered all positions. I am extremely competitive and passionate about mentoring student-athletes at ALL levels. The goal is to bring out the best within themselves as student-athletes, just as my many mentors have done for me both on and off the court.
Mentoring and coaching student-athletes takes a desire and teaching-style beyond the surface of the immediate situation. It takes knowing the learning-style of each student-athlete both separately and within the team concept.. The fundamental team concept is the collective instincts of successfully reacting to various situations during the game.
With this backdrop, I reenforce the principles taught by their parents, the importance of good study habits, family values within their respective communities and good sportsmanship. The reenforcement is with a positive “Never Give Up” attitude. These principles are not separate from their chosen sport, but rather a reflection of their own developing character and integrity
It is an honor to be part of the BloomSports Team.
