In 1982, Taekwondo ignited my passion for martial arts and a desire to learn as much as I could. I started a 3 year journey in Taekwondo and then moved onto Kung Fu for about 4 years. I returned to Taekwondo/Hapkido for another 3 years.
In 2004, while serving in the US Navy, I discovered my first Muay Thai Kickboxing gym. This discovery re-ignited my passion for martial arts once again. In 2007 & 2008 I was blessed to get a chance to participate in Bangkok Thailand at Master Toddy’s gym for a week each time.
I have been blessed to train with some of the best at their respective styles while traveling both the United States and around the world with names like Ben Rothwell, Matt Van Buren, Buck Grant, Chase Walden, Dominick Cruz, Luiz Claudio, Thiago Veiga, and Fabio Santos.
I was one of the original members or “bricklayers” here at Rothwell Mixed Martial Arts when we opened our doors in 2011. I retired from the Navy and resided in Florida from 2016-2018. In 2019, I decided to move back to the Kenosha area and continue to provide any help and pass on any knowledge I have to others here at Rothwell MMA.
