I have always had a passion for instructing, whether it was filling in as the team coach in high school water polo all the way through teaching my children and others in local sports such as soccer, water polo, softball or just helping neighborhood kids and parents off of training wheels. I believe that I can truly understand and continue to develop my basics and fundamentals by training others who are both new and experienced in MMA. Instructing allows me to give back and pass on all that I have learned. I am always the first to admit that none of this has come naturally to me and if I can do it so can you! I keep myself busy outside of MMA as well in triathlons, mountain and road biking, fishing, hiking and many other outdoor activities that let me enjoy the beauty that Ventura County has to offer.
