Biography

TRAINING: Training for me never changes. We don’t run practices based on opponents; we train to be prepared for any kind of fighter at any aspect of the sport, whether it’s a standing battle, a ground war, or a scramble fest. We prepare ourselves for it all daily. 
 
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started fighting in 2012 after graduating college and training to try out for the Olympic wrestling team with Ben Askren. He persuaded me into the sport of mixed martial arts instead.

Do you have any heroes?
Warren Sapp and Muhammad Ali

I’m one step closer to my goal / dream of being the world champion.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn?
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Whitewater with my degree in Business Administration. And I have an Associate’s degree in Liberal Arts from Lincoln College.
What was your job before you started fighting? College wrestling coach and a Supervisor at Holland Trucking and Freight

Two-time college wrestling All-American, once in Junior College (6th) and once in NCAA D3 (2nd)
