I am a martial artist first and a fighter second. I have been competing professionally for 16 years now, accumulating 35 fights. I currently compete in the UFC and am riding a 3 fight winning streak with my last one coming by KO in the 3rd round. I have reached a brown belt in BJJ but have since abandoned the Gi as I do not believe it to be a necessary training tool for me at this stage in my career. Outside of competing I also co-own and run the martial arts school Tristar Vancouver located at 7759 Edmonds street in the greater Vancouver area. I am at least as passionate about coaching as I am about fighting and have already produced a few elite level martial artists that are just now beginning to be recognized internationally. Aside from martial arts I love to use my voice and the platform I have attained in order to help those in similar places to where I started out with motivational speaking. Speaking is always something that’s come natural to me and I like to use it in many ways including podcasts and hip hop. As far as music goes hip hop is my first love. I started rapping at about 16 and continue to write and produce songs to this day. Hope this gives you a small glimpse of who I am and what I do.
