Bay Area Hoops stands on a simple philosophy of “Preparing for the Next Level.” which is a basis for Basketball or Life. As a graduate of Alfred University (NY) with a degree in Electrical Engineering, he uses data information to give an analytical but opinionated point of view that’s straight forward and unique.
His college basketball career was short and never materialized at Alfred University due to academics becoming a priority. However, he uses that motivation to give students a reason to never give up but to always maximize your goals.
