Check Engine: “Spiritual Maintenance Required”

I’ve been struggling to find the words to write something of quality or even just about where I am in life or mentally. I’m not the kind of person to just churn out pointless content. I value that the words I write paint a picture I love. Like art or God, it’s/He’s in the details. … Continue reading Check Engine: “Spiritual Maintenance Required”

Retiring the Sneakers & Induction into the Hall of Fame…

As many of you know, I graduated with my MBA last December after getting back from playing pro-ball in Australia, Sweden, and Lebanon in 2019. I now have a new degree and a few letters behind my name 😉 …. and boat loads of debt. So this is what it’s like to be an average … Continue reading Retiring the Sneakers & Induction into the Hall of Fame…

Challenge Yourself to Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable…

So I haven’t really written anything really since I got to Australia, a few months ago, and now that our season is done I figure I probably should get on that.

I love Australia, the culture, the people here, and Melbourne so coming back to play in their winter league wasn’t a hard decision. They didn’t really have to pressure me too hard to … Continue reading Update: From The Land Down Under…

Faith, Family, Basketball… In that Order…

My Swedish adventure is over. First stop back to the states was Gainesville, FL to finish up my 4th term of my MBA program through UF. Second stop, home. Third stop coming up, Australia. When I began this basketball journey I gave myself 3 years. I never thought I’d still be playing, but hey, you … Continue reading Faith, Family, Basketball… In that Order…

Sweden & a Little Perspective on the Price We Pay as Pro-Athletes Abroad…

I am officially in Sweden playing for the team called Telge, in Södertalje, Sweden. It’s pretty much a complete 180 from my situation in Lebanon. I have a cute little apartment with actual space to move around and a kitchen! Oh the little luxuries… The team’s gym has 6 courts, we have our own locker … Continue reading Sweden & a Little Perspective on the Price We Pay as Pro-Athletes Abroad…
