About

Background Story

A few years ago (2010) in Long Beach, California, I was an Executive Director of Annual Marketing Campaigns at a local university, and I had completed business school, achieving a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) degree.  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…

Well, I am based out of Las Vegas, Nevada, and currently, I make a living practicing DESIGN AND MARKETING. I am an 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.

I also spend a lot of my time practicing MARTIAL ARTS AND FITNESS. I just took on my first amateur mma fight and I 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.

UPDATE: Many folks have been asking me what I have been doing in terms of MUSIC AND DJ-ing. At the moment, I have placed my activity on hold, but hope to complete some of my own personal music projects.  Regardless, music has always been part of me.
