At Findlay he set the school record for most three-point field goals made in a season with 66. In 2012 he began attending Ohio State University where he remained for two more years. After the 2014 NCAA Tournament, he returned to Italy to play in Reggio Emilia. With Reggiana he played for three and a half years, winning the 2014 Eurochallenge and the 2015 Super Cup, the latter as the competition’s MVP.

In the Italian league, he averaged 12.4 points per game for the 2015/16 season, 15.2 for the 2016/17 season and 14.6 in 2017/18. He played three Eurocup seasons for a total of 45 appearances with 14.2 points per game scored, while shooting 37.6% from three and 85.6% from the free-throw line.
