I am 34 yrs old, I live and work in Manhattan. Aside from my wife and our son, my passion is jiu-jitsu. I'm obsessed. I spend as much free time as I can working on my game and most of the rest of time thinking about it. With this blog, I hope to record my progress, and my studies of jiu-jitsu. In December 2011, I was promoted to blue belt by Professor Marcos Santos. I currently study under Professora Vandi Vaz at Epic Fight Hybrid Training Center.
