I'm a 25 year old writer(Mostly poetry) and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu addict. I have published two books Emotions Volume 1: The Beginning of Turmoil and Emotions Volume 2: Better Days. I also run the blog which can be found here. The blog gives insight on both my Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and writing careers.  

Problem solved

The error I reported this morning has been fixed. Emotions Volume 1 is once again listed properly.

Important Notice

Thursday of last week I was notified about an incorrect listing on The current listing for Emotions: The Beginning of Turmoil(Volume 1) has no buy/add to cart button and that you can buy used copies starting at $191.04. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT make that purchase. The seller is not CreateSpace(the company I self-published with), myself, or The price of the book is $10.99. It was taken down due to miscommunication between myself and CreateSpace. CreateSpace has been notified and is working to fix this issue.

When it's fixed they'll tell me and I'll tell you.

Thank you all.

On Tour

Last week I started a blog tour, by accident but I started blog tour nonetheless. I must admit it's probably the most fun I've had in a long time. What's the point of the tour you ask? To promote Emotions: Better Days(Volume 2). The book is now in it's final edits and will out in about 2-3 months. I will link the blogs that have me as a guest as they go live. The links will be posted on twitter and facebook. You can follow me on twitter@ or just simply come here and use the twitter link box in the corner. Add me as a friend on Facebook too.

If you'd like an interview, a guest blog appearance, please email Thank you.

BJJ in MMA 3 Lesnar vs. Carwin

Sorry this is so late but the work for the publication and marketing of Emotions Volume 2 is in full swing so a lot of things are behind.

By now everyone knows how it went down, but in case you've been living under a rock here's a quick recap

Round 1: Carwin comes out hard and fast gets through with a straight right and drops Lesnar with what I believe was an uppercut lands in half-guard against the cage and pounds on Lesnar for four minutes after that.
Round ends

Round 2: Carwin's dead tired and throws a sloppy jab brock ducks and hits a textbook double leg lands in half-guard and passes to mount(carwin's half-guard was wide open) locks an arm triangle jumps off mount turns the corner and gets the tap.

Fight Analysis:
1) Always, Always, Always, Always get the dominate position. The sole reason that fight was not stopped in round 1 is because Carwin sat in the half-guard and didn't clear Lesnar's arms to get free shots. Passing to side mount or mount puts the fighter…
