Owner / Professor / The Paradigm Academy
A practitioner of the art since 2008. After practicing the art for a few months it became readily apparent that I would be doing this for the rest of my life. After receiving my blue belt I felt that one day I too would embark upon the journey of teaching others Jiu – Jitsu. Sports has never come easy but I have found that with enough hard work and dedication anything is possible.
My previous career as a filmmaker and photographer allowed me the ability to travel the world and become exposed to many of the best grapplers on this planet. Fast forward a couple of years and now I have a lovely daughter and a beautiful wife that help with the academy! It is our purpose to do for others what has been done for us.
Professor / The Paradigm Academy
After 4 years of collegiate wrestling, I struggled to find something to keep me motivated to exercise and stay active. After 8 years of going to the Gym day in and day out, I was introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Without knowing at that time it became a life altering decision. After 9 Years of constant struggles and hurdles to achieve the next level, I received my black belt. I am an avid competitor and as a black belt continue to improve myself and test myself on the mat. It was not an easy journey, but it was a journey well worth it.
