As the story has it, I woke up and found myself on the very opposite side of the globe – the flipside. I arrived February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d simply do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company, Flipside Fitness, and CEO of my own boxing club, Korea's largest -- Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada but only to pack up my bags and venture out again. Now I'm living in Makati, Philippines. Life for me is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This isn't a new chapter in the book of my life though, it's a whole new book I've started!!! I'm a whole new woman. I left Korea with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side.

Life is an adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

More Interested in the "Side Shows"... Saturday, August 12

Best thing about History Con for me was meeting numerous entrepreneurs who have launched their own little shops and were selling their product/service at the expo.  I met a young artist who for just a few bucks draws you into a cartoon character.  It's not a caricature like one would expect, she makes you look like a superhero.  I really wanted to get her to draw me but I discovered her right as I was leaving.  

Another really impressive entrepreneur I met was this young lady who launched her own metal jewelry company though I should note she makes more than just jewelry.  She uses a kind of welding metal to create this one of a kind, custom pieces, like rings, bookmarks and keychains.  She made me a bracelet, an Empowered bracelet, and I totally love it.
