He played college tennis and coached at the high school, collegiate, and tour level. He founded HighSchool.GG to provide a positive and captivating learning experience for all students. He recognizes that students learn best when they are engaged and having fun, and sees that enabling youth to operate an eSports franchise in High School is the perfect answer to today’s environment where future NCAA student-athletes are discouraged from treating themselves as a business in high school. HighSchool.GG is re-prioritizing learning the technical and business skills they’ll need to succeed in the economy of the future.
