Since, I have been mentored by world class teachers in Brazilian Jiujitsu, Muay Thai, Yoga (Vinyasa, Kundalini, and Acro), and entrepreneurship. The integrated balance between hard and soft, toughness and gentleness forms the core essence of my philosophical views.Other passions I have drawn wisdom from in the past include: screenwriting, acting, gymnastics, and persuasive debate.
