I studied self defense from a very early age and opened up my first dojo at age 21 and taught martial arts for 10 years 8 hours a day, 6 days a week. Once a year for an extended time I would venture somewhere in the world to study with great fighters from different styles, On the path as a teacher I had taught an accredited college course and had many students training with me at my dojo. It was during this time I was asked to get involved with various film production companies. After a near death experience I left teaching Martial Arts and wandered the globe for several years in search of self enlightenment. Having many adventures brought me eventually to Hollywood where I worked on the Tv show "Dexter" for all 8 years the show ran. Most of film projects that I create have many hidden meanings and some are based on real life encounters that happened to me but have been altered to protect the innocent.
