“I don’t think there is any question how good he was here, He made the all-conference team four times. As far as catching, he is hands down the best I have seen in my 20 years of coaching college baseball. He is easily the best catcher I have ever seen or played against.” – Fredonia State University baseball coach Matt Palisin. (, or 716-673-3743)

About Me

I have played two professional seasons in the US Pecos League, and was named to the All-Star Team for both seasons. I was considered the best defensive catcher in the league, and a durable, well respected team leader with excellent pop time, game calling and blocking skills. I work hard at making my pitchers better. I am an excellent hitter for average with gap power, and hold my college team’s record for career doubles.

I am primarily a catcher, but can play any position in the field. I was the #1 starting pitcher for my high school teams, and have pitched since then when needed in Australia.

I served as an assistant college coach the year after my graduation. For the last two winter seasons, in addition to playing in Australia, I have coached an under 16 club team. As well as my own team and the under 18 Capital Territory National Championship teams. The past two winter seasons I have volunteered with two local high school baseball programs. I have also run baseball instructional camps for younger players for the last two Australian seasons, and volunteered at several levels with other teams.

I am also featured on baseballjobsoverseas podcast with David Burns, accessible at:
