Personal: This is my first time making the Junior National Team!...My favorite types of music are EDM and Hip-Hop as Avicii and The Weeknd are my favorite artists....My biggest win has been double ISKA Night Of Champions wins. I have dreamed of winning on the US Open stage since I was 8 years old and this year I was finally able to accomplish that goal by winning in two divisions!...My coach and mentor Jarrett Leiker is my real life hero. He has given me all the tools I need to become a champion in karate and a champion in life. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it were not for his guidance and coaching!...A hidden talent of mine is that I specialize in Extreme Martial Arts and Tricking (Martial arts flips)....My inspiration comes from my mentors and students. They’re the ones that keep me pushing forward and have me constantly striving to be the best!..."Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm."
