Q&A
When and why did you start training for fighting?
I started submission grappling for fun, and it has all snowballed from there. I began helping training partners train for their fights and wanted to give it a try.
Do you have any heroes? My Dad
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It will make explaining the type of fighting I do a lot easier. I no longer have to go into a big explanation of "Have you seen the UFC? I do that, but haven't fought there yet." I can just say, "I fight in the UFC".
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Wentworth in Boston, MA. Graduated with a Bachelor's in Computer Science
What was your job before you started fighting? I worked in Tech Support while a student.
Accomplishments in pro competition? A few titles in Combat Zone, World Fighting League and Mass Destruction.
Ranks in any martial arts styles: Black belt in Jiu-Jitsu.
Favorite grappling technique: Heel Hook
Favorite Striking technique: Left Hook
