At my core, I love nothing more than the spark of a new idea brought to life. I’ve devoted my life to many such pursuits.

I've been a musician, audio engineer, photographer, software developer, tech entrepreneur, and Jiu Jitsu blackbelt under legendary Professor Roy Dean.

Every dream I’ve chased has brought me new skills, fresh insights, and opportunities to learn, grow, and achieve.

Of all my accomplishments, earning my blackbelt in Jiu Jitsu is the one I'm proudest of because it required the most dedication and perseverance. It took me 14 years to achieve it. Made harder by the fact that I started pretty late in life.

You can watch my journey to blackbelt in this short film called No Mercy For Old Men.

These days you'll find me traveling and teaching Jiu Jitsu, and making content on The Art Of Skill channel on YouTube.

If you'd like to train with me, I'm available for private lessons in San Diego, or check the Events page for other locations.

Or if you'd like to bring me out to do a seminar at your school, just reach out via the Contact page.
