My professional career has been filled with ups and downs but I wouldn't trade anything for the road I have traveled. I've been all over the world playing basketball in cities that I've never even heard of before I went to them. I've met people of all different nationalities and races. I've learned different languages and have touched lives all over the globe.
I've had my individual and team accolades and still push to achieve more. I believe that I am truly lucky!! I'm living out a dream! Every day I get to go and do a job that most people would give their right arm to have. I play basketball. I play a game that I have played all of my life! I started when I was 5 years old and have never stopped.
Only now I am paid to have this much fun. Sure I work hard and make many sacrifices like all jobs. My life revolves around what I do but it is what I love! My family has always been very supportive and understanding and that means the world to me!!!
I started off my professional career in Pau-Orthez!! Where is that you ask? Well, it's a professional team in France. I didn't stay long because they cut me about 4 months after I arrived there. I continued to work hard and soon found myself in need of a job the following year. I played with a team that went around and played the colleges. California All-stars was the name. I must thank David Pump for the opportunity.
I began to learn to love the game all over again at that point. Soon I went to play with the Harlem Globetrotters and there I lavished in the love of the game!! The following year I went to play in Biella, Italy. It was a great experience and it gave me a chance to show what I could do. I then moved on to Pesaro, Italy playing with Scavolini Pesaro. I stayed there that year and then departed to Greece where I played with Paok.
Once again I didn't stay long though because of financial problems with the team. Bluntly, I wasn't getting paid!!! I went back and played with the Globetrotters again. The next fall I was back with Scavolini Pesaro again. After that year I followed my long time teammate, Melvin Booker, to Istanbul, Turkey playing for Ulker. I remained there 2 years until I came to Milan where I play now with Armani Jeans Milano.
