Here is where I briefly bore you with the regular stuff such as where I'm from, what I do and where I plan to go next in my life.
Born in Chicago, IL. I've grown up with 3 primary loves, martial arts, music, and nature. In my childhood years my family would spend weeks and even months in the country between our family's farm in central Wisconsin, Southern Illinois and beautiful Appalachia Mountains of West Virginia. Nature is my greatest inspiration and growing up working in Chicago I do everything I can to get away and escape back into my fundamentals.
At six years old I got into martial arts and at 15 found my art of passion in Filipino Martial Arts. This has now become my primary full time living teaching thousands of people worldwide in this beautiful and unique martial art. Training in this art has helped me explore life, my mind and my soul deeper. It has also given me the freedom to trust in change.
At nine I found the guitar and since I also learned to play piano, mandolin and the harp. My life has been filled with art, music, philosophy and a heart that belongs in the forest. There are plans to go back permanently to live in the forest on some acreage and live peacefully, quietly and be inspired by nature to the fullest to think deeply and create.
My businesses consist of Kali Center, where I teach Filipino Martial Arts, IngramCarnate and Custom Menswear on Chicago where I'm partners in this business.
I'm now starting this blog as a place to record my philosophical thoughts and views and explore deeper into my art. Maybe some others will enjoy them too.
What kind of work to expect to find by me?
Here I'll be writing my blogs on my philosophies on different topics such as life, nature, existence, entrepreneurship, martial arts, and more.
I'll also be sharing my videography, photography and all other art works.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and getting to know me and the boring stuff better. I hope you enjoy some of my work!
