Bio

Behind the Action

 

I live and train in upstate New York and have since 2017. I started judo when I was 13 years old at the USA Stars in Tulsa, Oklahoma, under Pat Burris. At 15, I moved to Florida and trained for a few years under Shinjiro Sasaki at Sasaki Judo, ultimately becoming his first black belt. 2016 I competed in my first set of international competitions.  In 2017, I moved to the Jason Morris Judo Center and qualified for my first set of teams. The Junior and Senior Pan-American Championships and World Championships. 

Now, seven years later, I travel to a different international competition every month competing and earning qualifying points for the Olympics. My ultimate goal is to qualify for the 2028 Olympics in LA, California.
