About Coach

I am a nerd and I enjoy being a nerd. When I was in 3rd grade I was moved to 6th grade. The kids were bigger than me and I was picked on all the time. One day I was walking home and I was beaten up by six kids. My parents were going thru a divorce and when my mom came home from teaching and she saw me beat up and she took me to my first martial arts training school. I trained until I was 18 and fought in local and regional tournaments and remained undefeated in kickboxing. I joined the Army and eventually became a US Army Officer stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas with the 1st Cavalry Division. I left the Army in 1994 and started training martial arts and became an MMA coach when I opened Dominion MMA in 2009.

Turning Point

My turning point: I was stuck behind a desk job and I hated it. I quit, left everything behind, and started an MMA school. All I had was passion and a deep desire to prove to everyone that I could do. The journey has been exhilarating and I would not change a thing.

Motivation & Passion

I love to coach. I love to motivate. I love to change people's lives. Give me a problem and I will figure out a solution. Tell me no and I will eventually find a yes. This is all I do every day!
