His childhood took a turn when him and his family moved to the United States when he was eight years old. He was raised in Falls Church, where he cycled through various teams like Team America and Vienna VYS, until he joined Annandale United FC, which became his youth soccer backbone for the next seven years (u11-u18). He attended Meridian High School and played on the varsity team from 2014-2017. He won the state championship three times along with numerous personal accolades prior to playing collegiate soccer at Randolph-Macon College.
