I have been training in martial arts for over 15 years, am a seasoned fitness instructor, have a background in Muay Thai, MMA and I am a Brazilian Jiujitsu black belt. Over the years I have been blessed to train in some amazing gyms under world class instructors and with many high-level competitors, Bellator and UFC fighters. I have fought in both kickboxing and MMA at the amateur level. I was one of the winners of the TX tv show Cage Quest and I have competed and medaled throughout my Jiujitsu journey in various tournaments. I received my blue and purple belt from Rodrigo Cabral, brown belt from Rodrigo Cavaca and my black belt from Hugo Martins. I am an Instructor / co-owner at Gracie Barra SW Portland. I love Jiujitsu and believe in the Gracie Method. I enjoy creating a positive learning environment and helping my students succeed in being the best they can be.
