Personal: I started karate when I was five years old. I started because my mom wanted to get me involved with an activity to build confidence, and karate seemed like the perfect fit. I was lucky enough for my mom to find my current sensei, John Fonseca.I have been with the same sensei for over fifteen years, something not everybody can say....Three things people may not know about me is that I am a huge fan of video games, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing, and I am the oldest of 4 siblings.
