I loved sports growing up but could never seem to stick to one because I felt that I was good at every sport and just honestly found an escape from the world in just being outside playing different sports. When I discovered MMA I knew right then and there it was my calling and what I was meant to do with my life. 

There were two pivotal moments early in my career. The first was when I began competing. I entered my first Jiu-Jitsu tournament and beat three guys losing only one match by a point.  I took home 1st and 2nd place.  SUCCESS and WINNING became my drugs.  My other defining moment was my first kickboxing bout.  It was a setup fight for the promoter to use me. My opponent was more experienced, taller, and outweighed me by about 15lbs.  I won by TKO in the 2nd round.  It made me believe anything is possible through hard work and dedication.
