Prior to playing Test cricket he played for Jamaica senior and youth teams, most notably in the domestic competition in 1997 he made successive centuries that helped to announce his presence. He learned his craft under the guidance of Derrick Azan at the Garvey Maceo High School in Jamaica, an institution renowned for its excellence in School boy cricket in Jamaica, having produced the now deceased West Indies all rounder Laurie Williams, Keith Hibbert, Audley Sanson who represented Jamaica at the Senior level.
