After spending 2 decades in TV production and music supervision, including winning a couple of Emmys, I left LA for a different life raising a family in Colorado. From Los Angeles, I brought my love of sports — but especially UCLA sports — to the home of the Colorado Buffalos. My love for sports started at a young age connecting with my dad and only increased when I arrived at UCLA.
I bring the voice of the fan in the stands, rooting on my favorite team. Now as one of the hosts of the Own The Paint Podcast, I always have a soft spot for my Bruins, in College, the NBA and other leagues, and even after they’ve finished playing ball. Oh, and I occasionally root for players from other schools. Occasionally.
John since he was six fell in love with basketball. I remember the day my Father put up a rim and backboard with my Grandpa. Shooting granny shots to hit the bottom of the net only. I was hooked. A basketball junkie and gym rat is how I would describe myself. I am also a master Hypnotherapist. I have coached high school both in the states and abroad. I have done play by play on the radio for high school and colleges.
I have a heightened sense of people and am fascinated by the human consciousness. I can see the story within the story. This in a nut shell is what I bring to the table.
Hello my name is Mo Charlo and I’m a professional basketball player. I was born in Stockton, CA and went to high school in Eureka, CA. After graduating high school in 2001, I attended Diablo Valley Junior College and played basketball for two years there where my number 22 basketball jersey is retired and this year Feb 20 I will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
This past year I was also inducted into the Hall of fame at Eureka high school. After receiving my AA at Diablo Valley I received a full ride basketball scholarship at the University of Nevada Reno for 2 years and went to the NCAA Tournament.
I was born on the island of Trinidad; and immigrated to New York when I was 14. It was there that I started playing streetball on the nets behind our apartment, and the blacktops in New York City parks.
In New York City I also studied Tai Chi and Aikido, a practice that I teach and continue today. I moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, graduated from the College of Santa Fe, and have never left this beautiful city.
I am a math professor at NNMC, a certified clinical hypnotherapist (where I met John,), and have coached girl’s high school basketball for many years.
I have a deep belief and experience in the integration of healing arts with teaching and coaching. This becomes quite evident when we come together to talk about the art of basketball.
