I'm a firm believer that anything is made better by doing it with a
smile. So quick, think of something that makes you happy. Smiling

What I’m doing with my life
Teaching and training in martial arts full time. I get a chance to
push people's lives a little bit in the right direction every day
and I get paid to do something I absolutely love.
I’m really good at
I can whistle really well, but only the musical kind, not the

any super hero or kung fu movie, no matter how awful.

Favorite foods would be sushi, salmon, anything grilled, and fresh
fruits and veggies.
For music my favorite bands are Death Cab for Cutie and Incubus. I
will basically listen to anything that has a beat I can pound out
on my steering wheel while pretending to be Keith Moon.

6. Trying to get a little bit better every day at
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Am I a little bit smarter, stronger, or better than I was
On a typical Friday night I am
Either relaxing at home after teaching all evening or spending time
with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I keep a box with all of the drawings and cards that my students
have made me over the years to look through if I'm ever having an
You should message me if
You have a sense of humor, can carry a conversation, and enjoy
laughing and being in a good mood as often as possible!
