I enjoy being active and helping others reach their fitness and martial arts goals. My teaching style is energetic & fun yet detailed. I am a licensed juvenile martial arts instructor of the State of Wisconsin, Department of Safety & Professional Services. I am also an officially licensed United States Fight League youth MMA/Pankration coach.
I’ve been a martial artist since I started Taekwondo at 7 years old. At age 12, I added in Pankration, wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and boxing. I am a 2x US champion in Pankration. In addition to my blue belt in BJJ and purple belt in Kickboixng, I am a black belt in Taekwondo, a black belt in Pankration, and a tan belt in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP.) I’m also a United States Marine Corp Reservist, E-4 (corporal).
As a member of the Rothwell MMA professional fight team, I am constantly pushing myself and testing my skills against the best in the world.
I earned the nickname “Berserker” at the 2011 Pankration world games in Hungary. In the semi-finals of the grappling division, a Polish fighter broke my arm and I continued to fight and won bronze. The next day, I competed in the Agon pankration division and also took bronze. The Polish team made me an honorary member because I exemplified the characteristics of the Berserker (the Polish team mascot.)
