ABOUT ME:

I started Mixed Martial Arts in 2010.  I was looking to continue competing after finishing my college football career.  I walked into a BJJ class at Rothwell MMA and I was quickly welcomed by Ben Rothwell.  Within the first week, I was introduced to Kickboxing and was hooked.   After graduating from Carthage College, I continued learning martial arts, and worked as a high school teacher and coach.  I taught 6th grade social studies at Bullen Middle School in Kenosha, from 2013-2015.  I also coached wrestling, football, and soccer team conditioning for various local schools.  

I trained non-stop for a year before taking my first amateur MMA fight.  I kept training and went 8-1 in my amateur career.  Shortly after I turned pro in 2015, I quit my job as a 6th grade teacher to train and coach MMA full time.  I have been able to chase my dream of becoming a MMA world champion.  In between private lessons and teaching classes, I’m able to train 3 times a day.  I work on my cardiovascular conditioning and strength training, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Striking at Rothwell MMA.  Since my switch to full-time martial artist, I have compiled a 7-1 professional MMA record.  I won my most recent Bellator fight and am hopeful for my future.

As a Rothwell MMA Coach, I not only help others learn martial arts, but am able to hone my own skills in the process.  I’m always asked ‘do you miss teaching?’ and I say ‘no, because now I get to teach something I love everyday.’  I especially love teaching our members since they are energetic, uplifting, and eager to learn.  Visit me in Kickboxing at Rothwell MMA today!
