When and why did you start training for fighting? I was always an athletic and competitive person. Growing up in a small town, we only had hockey as a sport to play. Once I had aged out of that, I was looking for something to fill that void. I walked into my first MMA gym, and I was immediately humbled and had my eyes opened to the sport. I was already about 19-20 when I started training, but I was instantly hooked. It has taken over my life every day since I first walked in.

What titles have you held? I am the Rise FC 125 and 135 champion. Champ-champ!

Do you have any heroes? I draw a lot of inspiration from all types of people. I have no specific person that I see as a hero. There are lots of smaller, everyday heroes all around us.

What would it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It would be an absolute dream come true. I have had so many visons of competing on the world stage. I really want to be able to give my family/friends and fans something big to cheer about. They have all supported me for so long, it would mean a lot to see their excitement and joy when I get that big UFC win.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I went to trade school and have two journeyman certificates, one in Motorcycle Mechanics and the other in Marine Mechanics.

What was your job before you started fighting? I manage the service department at Tracker Boats at Bass Pro Shops.
