I was born on July 24, 1988.  I'm an American professional basketball player for ADA Blois Basket 41 of the LNB Pro B. A native of Vacherie, Louisiana, I played college basketball at Louisiana where I was named the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year as a senior in 2009–10. Since 2010 I've competed professionally and was named an NBA Development League All-Star in 2011–12.

After graduating from West St. John High School in Edgard, I began my collegiate career for Louisiana–Lafayette in 2006. My freshman season was inauspicious; I averaged 1.6 points and 1.7 rebounds per game in 25 games played. I scored a total of 41 points on the year. The following season, 2007–08, was similar to my freshman campaign. I averaged 3.1 points and 3.5 rebounds per game while only scoring 90 points on the year.

In my junior season, my productivity markedly increased to 7.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.3 blocks, and 0.8 steals per game. Despite my increase in personal success, our team only mustered a 10–20 overall record for the year. For the third time in as many seasons, we failed to earn a postseason tournament bid.

The 2009–10 season saw I had become an All-Sun Belt Conference performer. My season statistical averages shot up to 17.9 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.8 steals, and 1.5 blocks per game. I led Louisiana–Lafayette in all five categories and was the only Sun Belt player to lead their team in all. The league's coaches voted me as a first team All-Sun Belt selection as well.  I became Louisiana–Lafayette's fourth conference player of the year since the school joined NCAA Division I, and the first since Michael Allen in 1993–94. The 2009–10 season saw us go 9–0 in league play at home; we finished the year with an overall record of 13–17.

I was not selected in the 2010 NBA draft. I began my professional basketball career in Belgium for Okapi Aalstar. I returned to the United States in 2011–12 and signed with the NBA Development League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers. In 44 games played, I averaged 11.7 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game. I was called up as a replacement player for the 2012 NBA Development League All-Star Game after Lance Thomas was unable to participate.

The 2012–13 and 2013–14 seasons I signed to play in France for Châlons Reims and Hyères-Toulon, respectively. While at Hyères-Toulon Var, I averaged 15.8 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. In September 2014, I signed with Okapi Aalstar for my second stint with the Belgian club.

On July 30, 2015, I signed with Uşak Sportif of the Turkish Basketball League.  I eventually left the team. 

On September 26, 2016, I signed with Lavrio of Greek Basket League.  I left the team shortly after.

In the 2017–18 season, I played with ADA Blois Basket 41 of the French second-tier LNB Pro B. I led my team to the championship, which therefore meant promotion to the first-tier LNB Pro A. As well, I was named the league's Most Valuable Player.
