About Donald

I am a graduate of Fairleigh Dickenson University where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. A few years later, I began a non-profit organization which gave me the opportunity to make a difference in countless children’s lives. Spanning nearly fifteen years, my career is a testament of hard work, love of basketball and helping children and their families.
Beginning in 1991, I joined the Marketing and Promotions team at Def Jam Records, the illustrious urban record label. While there, I not only gained lifelong connections but also became a respected member of the team, and an expert in making consumers aware of various Def Jam products through a grassroots campaign approach. Through my experience at Def Jam, I realized the need for grassroots campaigns and branched out to form my own company, while continuing to do work for Def Jam.
My company is a full service entertainment company.
While working for the entertainment industry, I never left my first love, basketball. My coaching career started with the Hollis Queens organization, “I Love Our Youth” Hollis Biddies. I formerly held a number of coaching titles, including Director of Basketball Operations for the LL Cool J Summer Basketball Tournament and Event Organizer for Hofstra University’s “I Have a Dream Tournament and Fundraiser”. It is an annual event held at Long Island Lutheran School in Brookville, Long Island, which hosted thirty-six regional teams. My non-profit has also hosted its first awards dinner honoring academic athletes.
I entered the 2009-10 seasons at St. Mary's High School as the coordinator of basketball operations then assisted in the day-to-day operations of the basketball program. In addition, I served as the liaison with the athletic department, players and varsity boys head coach. My responsibilities were assisting the development of the team's calendar and being in charge of St. Mary’s Varsity team video operations, including advance scouting of opponents, as well as evaluation video for St. Mary’s players. Other duties were being in charge of player’s study hall, the video library and video exchange. I also assisted with scouting, travel, and community service initiatives. In 2012 I was offered an assistant coach position and recruiter for the historic high school, Molloy in Queens, New York. After my employment of one year I was offered a position as the assistant coach at Long Island Lutheran High School where I am currently employed. I am also an AAU Coach for a New York and National team.
It was this combination of grassroots expertise, love of basketball, and helping children that inspired me to create my non-profit, a sports organization established with the idea of exchanging sports, cultural experiences and education on an international level. As founder, I envision aiding in developing and expanding the global basketball movement. My non-profit is an organization established with the idea of exchanging sports, cultural experiences and education on an international level.
