About me

Hi, I am a professional poker player and a mindset coach. Started playing poker full time in 2014. Primarily playing HU cash games I soon came to realize that my biggest strength that separates me form most players is my mindset. Having been a business owner in the past, working with a life coach gave me the knowledge to breakthrough all the mental challenges in today’s games. I have held mindset sessions in one of the biggest poker coaching sites with group webinars of as high as 100 players. However, my biggest strength and passion is 1-1 coachings. The main result I want to achieve with my mindset coachings is to help as many players as possible to crush poker and life at the same time.
