Biography

When and why did you start training for fighting?  I first started pondering the idea of fighting towards the end of my senior year in college.  Right after I was done competing in the nationals I told myself I would take a year off to get some rest and to see if the will to compete was still in me.  I didn’t make it more then 2 weeks and knew that I had to get back into shape and start training again.  I met my good friend and coach Paul Myatovich, who helped guide me along.
