And I doing the workouts every day, and then I also was doing some office. And I was I was pretty green at that point never really had a had fulltime job in. So doing office stuff was a little different. And even then I think about being an agent I wanted to be a coach and from there. I I took an assistant coaching position with. Team called beer twos. Below an Italy. And a different agent helped me get that job. Oh, Sam Goldfetter of acceler sports management Puzo Jeff Schwartz partner. I wanted that. And I don't know. I was the young guy just really trying to figure out my place in the world. I knew it was going to be in basketball.

But the assign a two year contract and get a coaching license. And it was just it was a little bit of a bigger commitment that I wanted to make at the time and. Long story short. I ended up going to job with with Jeff and Sam and move them back to LA, and then you know, from there the rest was history bounced around a little bit and ultimate in a as an agent on my own having my own company, but it wasn't it wasn't really planned to just kind of happened.
