Other Interests

BJJ & Submission Grappling | Food & Cooking

I am an avid practitioner of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), in which I have been training for over 14 years and hold a first degree black belt. Through the sport I have developed an emboldened sense of determination, perseverance and composure in uncomfortable situations, as well as building a network of life-long friends. I have also continually developed my coaching abilities, regularly teaching classes for up to 60 participants.

 

I can also be frequently found in the kitchen or attending to my BBQ smoker. I’m currently in the midst of a taco frenzy. Salsa de molcajete anyone?

What am I learning right now?

As a life long learner and self-experimenter, I’m always looking to move forward in one area or another. Right now I’m…

  • Wrapping up my LEED Green Associate certification (by end Q1 2022).
  • Reading ‘Blood Meridian’ by Cormac McCarthy.
  • Trying to get to grips with making perfect Pibli style picked onions.
