Biography

When and why did you start training for fighting? Becoming a professional fighter was a dream of mine ever since I watched the 1st UFC. I used to wrestle in high school and did a little judo out there too. I went into the Marine Corps and trained with Gerald Strebendt for about six months. That is where I got my first look at Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Once I got out I moved to Orlando and started training with Gracie Barra. I’m now part of American Top Team.

What ranks and titles have you held?
Purple Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Do you have any heroes?

It's the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.

I'm still working on my Criminal Justice degree.
