My father raised me to be a Martial Artist when I was old enough to walk and continued my training for 17 years. I ventured off to train in Baguazhang where my Sifu taught me valuable methods to gain internal and relaxed power. I continue my Baguazhang practice with another Instructor here in Beaverton (I am not qualified to teach Baguazhang, but I am qualified to share the principles my first Sifu instilled in me).
I am a part time musician, mainly playing my acoustic with songs I wrote or songs I love. I believe having pleasure in the way you live your life is very important and helps foster a powerful imagination - I often use anime, superheroes, and myths and legends of old time strongmen and martial artists to influence my training.
