I grew up in Bel Air, Maryland, a suburb of Baltimore. Yet since 2010 I've lived in Bloomington, Illinois, establishing Warbird Training Academy there during my professional baseball career.
My last season of pro baseball was in 2016, and since retiring I've transitioned deeper into writing, speaking, and creating videos that help young people find their footing both in sports and life.
I've written for many online publications in addition to my two books: Pitching Isn't Complicated (2013) and Dear Baseball Gods: A Memoir (2019). If you really want to know who I am and what I stand for, start with my memoir.
I really enjoy the many projects you'll find here on my website. They give me purpose and I enjoy giving back.
