About Me

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.  


2/1/11 is my return to training!!! I went the doctor on the 12th and was told once my stitches fall out everything's good. I'm very excited, I'm talking kid in a candy store for the first time excited. I was planning on hitting all of grand slam tournaments this year. (Grand Slam of BJJ=European Championship, Pan Championship, World Championship, Brazilian National Championship) However that has become impossible due to my recent trails. The Europeans are the 26th and 27th of this month and the Pan Championship is in late March and I just wont be in competition shape. Since I will miss those two events I'll probably hit the New York Open in April just so I can work off my rust before the Worlds in June. These plans are strictly tentative we shall see what 2011 holds for me I'm just happy to be able to get back on the mats again.
