As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.
After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

I was the smelly little broken boy in the back cage, the one with poop on my face. Amy, now my mom, approached my cage so I sat up straight. I gave her my best gentleman pose hoping she'd look past just how rough and dirty I was. Then, when she asked the store worker if she could hold me, I latched my arms around her. I didn't know if she'd adopt me but I wanted to hold on to that moment for as long as I could so I held her as tight as I could. And just like that, she saw in me something others hadn't and she adopted me.
