Background Story

A few years ago I lived in Long Beach, California, as an MBA graduate and an Executive Director of Annual Marketing Campaigns at a local university. Life was good.

But something just wasn’t right. It was a great life, but perhaps it wasn’t “MY Life.” I decided to make a major life change to find myself personally and professionally. I left that life behind and moved to the desert to be me… This website documents my life journey.

Where I am at now…

I am currently based out of Las Vegas, Nevada, making a living as a DESIGNER AND MARKETER. I am a Web Design and Content Management Instructor at University of Nevada Las Vegas and a Self-Employed Consultant providing Design and Marketing services to small and mid-sized companies. To supplement my efforts in design and art, I have also taken up PHOTOGRAPHY. I’ve got a lot to learn, but I’m happy with my progress.

Aside from that, I spend most of my time practicing MARTIAL ARTS AND FITNESS. I’ve trained Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Brazil and studied the art of Muay Thai in Thailand.  But there’s no place like home, Las Vegas, where I train with my Cobra Kai family.  I took my first amateur MMA fight in 2013 and continue to compete in Jiu Jitsu.  I may even begin competing in Boxing and Muay Thai if time permits.  Feel free to follow me on my journey or send me a message here.

Many folks have been asking me what I have been doing in terms of MUSIC AND DJ-ing. At the moment, music is still a huge part of my life, and I will still perform sets from time to time, but it is not the highest on my priority.  I know that as time flies, I will always be able to delve into music, but I will not always have the chance to fight…
