Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Ask if the shooting coach knows how to recognize and correct shooting flaws. Beware of promises of super quick fixes to shooting flaws. Flaws are easy to point out, but they take time to overcome.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. That a basketball shooter can learn how to adjust based on where they miss shots, short, long, left or right.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I am able to recognize, diagnose and fix basketball shooting flaws that many other coaches miss or do not correct properly.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I love working with players who want to learn and get better and are willing to adjust how they shoot in order to be consistently good. It is very satisfying to see players I have trained in camps or private sessions perform better than they ever have before.
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. I have always been fascinated by the basketball shot and have tried to learn its intricacies. In 1992, I began working basketball shooting camps for Buzz Braman, an NBA shooting coach. In 1997, I was hired by Shot Doctor Basketball Camps, Inc. to be a shooting coach. I have grown, studied and developed ever since.
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. In 2006, I was the women's assistant coach at a local community college. Our team was sixth in the nation in free throw shooting percentage.
