As a native of Washington DC, my love for the fitness industry started when I was very young. My biggest goal then was to become the fastest boy in the neighborhood. My dream grew into an intense passion for the Olympics. As a result of hard work I was granted an invitation to the 2000 Olympic Trails for the 400 meters. During my time off the track I pursued my second love, Martial Arts. My goal was to be just like Bruce Lee. My areas of focus are Boxing, Muay Thai, Hapkido, Tae Kwon Do, Jeet Kune Do, and Wing Chun. In 2011 I was named AAU Tae Kwon Do Sparring Champion and successfully defended my title in 2012. I hold “Sharpening the Tools” Level 4 instructorship in Jeet Kune Do and I am also honored to be a Barn Member of the Close Range Combat Academy as a Barn Member. The name Barn Member is given only to direct students of Grandmaster Randy Williams, noted as one of the greatest practitioners of the Wing Chun art form. In 2014 after a very scary visit with my doctor who said "You need to make some changes" related to my physical well being. I was over weight (obese) and pre diabetic. My doctor's words ignited a fire in my spirit and I transformed myself into what you see today and I'm dedicated to helping everyone achieve the same level or greater success. I consider being a fitness personality a great honor. Helping people to change their lives for the better is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. I am excited to sharing my 23yrs of knowledge to help you reach all of your martial arts/fitness goals .
