His personal best time is 10.14 seconds, achieved in Clermont Florida April 2014. This makes him the second fastest Bahamian of all time behind Derrick Atkins, and fastest Bahamian-born sprinter, at the time. That mark has since been broken by Shavez Hart

He teamed up with Jamial Rolle, Shavez Hart and Trevorvano Mackey to break the Bahamian 4x100 national record in Morelia, Mexico. On July 26, 2017 he was suspended for four years for a doping violation for the presence of Stanozolol dating back to April 22.[2][3]
