Doing something I have a passion for and being able to make a living doing it.  I really love to train, some people don't, but whether it is BJJ, Boxing, Kick Boxing or wrestling I love it all. 


Who were your heroes growing up?

Muhammad Ali, Steve Prefontaine, and Lance Armstrong. 


If you had the choice, who would you like to fight?

GSP, I got into the sport to see how good I could be and facing him would be the ultimate test to find that out.

Math because I was always very good at it and enjoyed it..

I love to play disc golf.
