I am a long time Jiu Jitsu practitioner and MMA fan. I began training in 1997 at Carlson Gracie Academy in West Hollywood. I have trained all off and on over the years all over California. I also received a purple belt from Eddie Bravo in 2006. The UFC and the sport of MMA have meant a lot to me to say the least. I have been to many events, trained with some of the best, and followed the sport religiously for many years. I recently decided to show my passion for the sport by contributing in the way that I feel I can best contribute..through officiating. I was trained by Herb Dean through his MMA Official class. I feel honored putting into practice what I have learned and honored to help protect these passionate fighters.
