"There is no satisfaction that can compare with looking back across the years and finding you've grown in self-control, judgment, generosity, and unselfishness."
– Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Now that you've found my blog, I hope you continue to follow! Witness me travel the world teaching and competing in Muay Thai (Thai Boxing), Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) as I meet new friends and discover cultures from all walks of life.
