I am a natural student with a love for teaching. My life is dedicated to the study of Boxing, Athletic Performance and the creative arts. My learning and teaching style is through DIRECT hands on, immersible experiences. By virtue of staying true to my personal studies I have been a Child and Youth Worker, Personal Trainer, social marketer, digital media artist, Graphic Designer and have also lived and served as a Novice Monk in the Rinzai Zen Buddhist Tradition.
In 2008, bored with conventional gym workouts, I started Boxing to satisfy my martial and fitness needs. This sparked a personal transformation which led me to permanently shed 60 lbs and train and fight out of world renowned boxing gyms all over the Golden State.
Now in my mid-thirties, I work with professional and amateur fighters, enthusiasts and those simply looking to improve their quality of life to achieve their individual and specific goals. In June of 2015, I cornered my first professional fight. I currently work with all my fighters as an in-house trainer at TS Boxing, in West Los Angeles.

With each of my fighters (I believe everyone is a fighter), whether it’s in preparation for battle or lifestyle management, the aim is always to establish self-honesty. Success is the byproduct of a healthy commitment to integrity and excellence. Boxing as a fitness activity is a proven means of getting in incredible shape both physically and mentally.
My repertoire of exercises are mostly closed kinetic chain exercises with plyometric and isometric variations and can be targeted for specific improvements to one’s athletic performance. Programs are individually designed to shock the body to increase one’s functional strength, while developing speed, coordination, and reactivity.
With me, you will study and improve upon your Boxing fundamentals. From head, body and feet movement to punch technique and weight transferring. We’ll also develop offensive and defensive strategy tailored to your fight style and body type while working on footwork, positioning and ring generalship.
As with any weight management program, diet is the key to abs and muscle striations. Please inquire about a holistic nutrition program customized for your health and/or fitness needs.
I do private one-on-one sessions and can cater to groups. Please contact me with any questions regarding rates and availability.
Please feel free to TEXT or EMAIL me at any time. Calling is not recommended, unless you are an established client. Thank you kindly.
