I have been involved in martial arts since 1993. I started taking classes in Tang Soo Do after my oldest son started taking classes in Putnam with Mike Bogdanski. I am a 4th degree Dan holder in Tang Soo Do. I have been an instructor for Quest Martial Arts since 1997 after I received my 1st-degree black belt. Both of my sons are 2nd-degree black belts. Karate has been an important part of my family's life.
My favorite thing about being an instructor is teaching the beginner belts. I hope that I help the students become excited and have great experiences like I have had throughout my years as well as teaching them the basics of Tang Soo Do.
I hope to continue teaching and learning martial arts as long as I can. I really enjoy doing the self-defenses and throws.
I have been employed by Petco as a manager for the last 11 years. I enjoy spending time with my wife and family, fishing, working with animals, and using my degree in photography.
