I am from Montenegro but was raised in Southern California. I enjoy long walks on the sideline and reading scouting reports. As a boy, I was trained to be a classical pianist. But after I grew to 6 feet tall in middle school, I knew that basketball was going to be my thing. Once my collegiate career at UC San Diego ended in 2002, I began covering the NBA as a freelance journalist. In 2010, I started my own website: BlogNBAsketball. My work has been featured on ESPN True Hoop, Sports Illustrated, & the LA Times. I also wrote about the Memphis Grizzlies for Sports Blog Nation. My work has been narrowed in recent months to player evaluations/features.
I am currently a basketball scout through Sports Management Worldwide and am extensively scouting the Adriatic Basketball League back home in an effort to show pro teams here what I can do. I am also currently pursuing my Masters Degree in Sports Management (expected completion: Summer of 2014).
My goal is to work for an NBA team by the Fall of 2014.
