The American/German who grew up in Boston following the Boston Celtics as a kid and hanging around 2 time NBA champion Dave Cowens who was his neighbor did his first basketball reports in 2003 for American Forces Network in english in Frankfurt Germany covering the Opel Skyliners. Soon he started doing play by play of the Skyliners on webradio. He also was the first person to have a weekly basketball show on German radio in 2006 at a time where social media was nonexistent. He also called 7 BBL allstar games and did games of the German national team. He has been doing live stream of basketball games from various leagues since 2012 covering youth games up to the professional level

His 15 year basketball reporting career has resulted in 500 plus games called and 1000 plus interviews conducted. Some of his interviews over the years were with players like Chris Williams, Shammond Williams, Casey Jacobson, Jon Leuer and Tyler Honeycutt to name just a few. He also is the first multi-lingual basketball commentator in Germany as he did play by play for the Fraport Skyliners Eurochallenge season and 2015-2016 Fiba Europe Cup season where they won the title. He also did play by play of the 2017 and 2018 German youth U-16 and U-19 championships in German and english. Currently besides his daily Eurobasket reports he is working on putting the finishing touches on his first book describing his life in the German basketball world.
