Top Attributes:

1v1 Defending, Awareness, Versatility, Pace, Vision, Creativity, Passion, Attacking from the Back


My desire is to play the game I love at the highest level possible and be successful. Reaching the pinnacles that I have planned for myself is what keeps me motivated every day. Winning is very important to me; team accolades are more important to me than individual success.


I am a true competitor, with a very intense style of play. I have a strong soccer IQ and I possess intangible traits that come alive every time I step on to the field. I am a very versatile athlete that can play any position on the field, with the ability to take over a game at any moment with my skill and determination. My creativity on the field gives me a great sense of field vision, this allows me to create attack, just as much as break down attacks. My pace allows me to attack from the back, make runs into space, constantly intercept balls played in to the attack, and still be able to get back into position. There is a difference between natural talent and work ethic, I am lucky to have been blessed with both. I have a leadership personality, and I constantly am looking to keep my teammates focused during training and excited on game day. I look to be the teammate that everyone turns to in times of adversity.

Playing History:

ODP (Olympic Developmental Program) Eastern Pennsylvania – At the age of 9 years old, I was the youngest player to ever make the U-13 ODP team. I continued to play for the state team for 5 years. Playing up for several years shaped me into who I am as a player today, I had to learn to be assertive on the field and make quicker decisions.

Lehigh Valley United

Playing for Head Coaches Greg Ramos & Mike Gorni, we accomplished a lot in our 10 years together. With multiple offers to play academy at other clubs, I chose to stay loyal to my club and my teammates. In our decade run, we won 8 Pennsylvania State Championships, 4 Region 1 Championships, and 5 National Tournament appearances. Teammates are like family, and I believe you should remain loyal to family as much as you can.

Stroudsburg High School (High School)

Playing for Head Coach James Ellison, he played me as attacking center mid in a free-lance role which was encouraging enough for me to take over every game I played in. He saw the potential in me and at the time, I was able to play to my highest ability and it showed. I started four years on varsity where I lead the team to 2 District Championships, 2 League Championships, and 1 Pennsylvania State Elite 8 appearance; all while making history for the school individually and as a team. Throughout my four years I saw many individual accolades such as 4x 1st Team All-Conference, 2x League MVP, 2x Pennsylvania State Team, 1x All American, 2x Pocono Record POY, 1x Morning Call POY, and set the school record in goals and assists (66 Goals, 70 Assists).

Wilmington University (2013-2015)

I played two seasons at Wilmington University for Head Coach Nick Papanicolas. I was the youngest on the team coming in to camp at 17 years old and Coach made sure I was accommodated to make sure I was acclimated before the season start. He saw me as an asset on the wing, where he shaped my game to be a winger and allowed me to use my creativity. As a team, we had a successful 2013 season, received a bid to the NCAA tournament, and made it to the second round. In 2014 we were finalists in the conference tournament. I was named to Wilmington University’s Decade All-Hustle team, Dean’s List and Scholar Athlete honors. The competition on the field was great, but I felt that I needed a more fulfilling educational experience and a new scene so after two great seasons, I transferred.

Fairleigh Dickinson University (2015-2016)

I played one season at Fairleigh Dickinson University. Playing Division 1 soccer was a great experience to be able to play against some of the best talent in the nation. I played in 16 games, and started 13 of them. I scored 2 goals and had 3 assists, and was awarded with scholar athlete and dean’s list honors. Unfortunately, the school did not live up to expectation and the expenses became too much and I decided to return home to graduate.

East Stroudsburg University

In May of 2017, I graduated with a BS in Psychology with Magna Cum Laude academic honors. Along with scholar athlete and dean’s list honors.

Lehigh Valley United PDL

Playing for Coach Andy Adlard, he really made sure he focused on the technical side of my game, and started me all season at outside back. My role was to attack from the back and work the wing with the outside midfielder. Depending on the game or the situation, coach would put me up front at forward to win the ball and create chances.
