A 6-6 slotman who loves to use his heft to be effective inside the paint. He has a decent stroke from the outside and can consistently hit the open jumper from any distance.

Dubbed "Baby Shaq" in the Philippine Basketball League where he played for the Granny Goose team because of his physical resemblance to the Boston Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal. He was drafted in the first round of the 2007 PBA Draft by the Alaska Aces. He was then traded to the Air21 Express before the 2008-2009 season started. He had a short stint with the Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters before finding his way back again to Air21.
