Shooting Guard

How did you start in basketball and when did you start playing?

Well I played football for most of my school days. I started playing basketball at secondary school at about 14/15 which is a late start to the game, but I fell in love with it immediately.

I first played for Coventry Crusaders U16 premier for a year and then two years U18. After that I went to university and played national league division II with Northampton Neptunes, playing against the warriors. Then, Wellingborough Phoenix, Birmingham A’s and now Leicester Warriors.

Your greatest achievement?

That’s a tough one. Hopefully my greatest achievements are ahead, helping to bring league and cup trophies to the warriors would be great. But my greatest achievement is probably playing while studying, graduating with my undergraduate and masters degrees while earning promotion two consecutive years and winning a few trophies at the University of Northampton.

Dream Team

Not my 5 to win but just my favourite at each position:
John Stockton
Micheal Jordan
LeBron James
Tim Duncan
Hakeem Olajuwon

Interesting fact

I’m a psychologist, completing research for my Doctorate (PhD) and I have a science podcast on the iTunes Store and Spotify.
