Born and raised in Pasadena Tx. Graduated in 1992 from Pasadena High at which point I signed with The University of Houston on a baseball scholarship. After taking a medical redshirt my freshman year at U of H, I transferred to Lee Jr. College where for the next two years won all conference honors as a catcher. In 1995 I was fortunate enough to selected in the Minor League draft by the Kansas City Royals where I spent 2 seasons.  After a traumatic injury, I was released from the K.C. organization at which time I finished my playing career with the Amarillo Dillas in the Texas/La Independent League.  I have been conducting private lessons since 1995 to both baseball and softball players alike.
