About Me

As a Martial Artist:

At age 12, I began training in the martial art of my childhood hero Bruce Lee. My Mom was broke so in order to pay for my lessons, I delivered newspapers around my neighborhood and sold gum at my school.  (Martial Arts comes in handy when you’re hustling at school.)

Now, I am one of only two Full Instructors in Bruce Lee’s Jun Fan/JKD under Sifu Kevin Seaman and an instructor in Muay Thai under both Kevin Seaman and Ajarn Surachai Sirisute.

24 years in and I’m still practicing and training.

As a Teacher:

I have experience in working with numerous organizations as a mentor for at risk youth and teach numerous classes and hundreds of students at all three of the CNY MMA locations. I also taught a Boxing and a Muay Thai class at Cornell University for many years.  In addition, I was certified as a Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis counselor in 1998.

I’m raising two kids and multiple grown ups.

As a Fighter:

I won my first National Full Contact Championship at age 15. I went on to win numerous awards and titles since that time including the prestigious 1999 New York State Golden Gloves Heavyweight Boxing Championship. In 2008, I was selected from thousands of fighters, from all over the world, to be a contestant on Season 7 of Spike’s hit TV show ‘The Ultimate Fighter’.  Even had a knockout of mine in Atlantic City, NJ featured on Knockout Sportsworld on Spike TV in 2010.

Pretty sick.

As an Entrepreneur:

I started with nothing and now I have something.  I’ve busted my ass to get here. I’m never satisfied when it comes to business.  It’s a blessing and curse.

I create products, produce ideas, make payroll, help people be more, defend my territory, and lose my mind numerous times throughout the week.

I eat PowerBars.
