As a graduate of Carmel High School in 2010, I have built a successful sports performance business and facility in my hometown specializing in baseball training and performance-enhancing programs including speed, strength and agility conditioning, biomechanics, nutrition and injury prevention.
During my junior year in high school, I was selected as a Perfect Game Aflac All-American which identified the top 40 high school baseball players in the country. I was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 40th round of the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft, but turned down that offer to continue my playing career and education at Vanderbilt University, an SEC baseball powerhouse.
While at Vanderbilt, I was an important member of the first Commodore baseball team to compete in the College World Series. I was named a Freshmen All-American, a finalist for SEC Freshman Player of the Year and named to the All-SEC team. I was also named multiple times to the SEC All-Tournament team. In the summer of 2012, I played for the Orleans Firebirds in the prestigious Cape Cod Baseball League and was selected to the Cape Cod All-Star team and also finished in the top of many offensive categories.
I won Vanderbilt Baseball’s prestigious Omaha Challenge Championship two years in a row. This award is given to the top performing player after participating in a grueling four-day competition that tests your physical strength and endurance along with your overall mental toughness. At Vanderbilt, I was named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll each year and earned my degree in Finance and Entrepreneurship.
During my junior year at Vanderbilt, I was selected as a pre-season All-American and drafted by the Houston Astros as the first pick in the 4th round of the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft. I played four years in the Astros organization including parts of three years with Double A Corpus Christi and was named to the Texas League All-Star team. In 2017, I signed with the Boston Red Sox and played parts of two seasons reaching Double A Portland.
I hold active certifications in TPI, USAW, FMS Level 1, and AED/CPR.
