About Me

  • Competed professionally for close to a decade in 18 countries.
  • ‘21 BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells • ‘21 San Diego Open ATP Event
  • 2 decades of teaching experience.
  • I enjoy teaching all ages and skill levels.
  • Patient, detail oriented, adapting to the unique needs of each student

I was born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Haiti where I was introduced to the game by my father. After moving to Southern California at the age of ten, my love and passion for tennis truly began to develop while playing on the junior circuit. After playing through high school I traveled all over the world to play professionally on the ITF and Open Circuit. After my playing career was over I spent some time living in Europe then moved back to the U.S. and transitioned into coaching. That’s when I fell in love with tennis all over again. I leaned to appreciate the game in a different way. I became passionate about communicating with my students in ways that would allow them to enjoy the process and the journey as much as the result to ultimately get the best out of themselves. Both my competitive journey and coaching journey have allowed me to build and maintain long lasting relationships with former opponents and students who I am now proud to call my friends.
