As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I was wrong. I stayed, launched my first company, Flipside Fitness, and then opened Korea's largest boxing club, Hulk's Boxing (now called Hulk's Club).

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again.

Now I live in the Philippines where I am the CEO and head coach of Empowered Clubhouse, the Philippines' first and only boxing clubhouse exclusively just for women. I also am the founder of the Lil' Sistas Project, CEO and designer of Slay Gear and Baa Baa Black Sheep .Ph.

A Harsh Reality

Today my business partner and I met with the Chief of Bicutan DOH TRC -- a drug rehabilitation and treatment centre where patients are court-ordered to reside here no less than 6 months.
We got the grand tour of the facility and this basketball court 
would be our area if our proposal is accepted.
The entire area surround the drug rehab centre is quite intense.
We passed by military soldiers lining the curbs, taking a break, and then we passed by a massive group of police cadets doing some physical training. (see picture above)
Then we were shown the local Quezon jail, just down the road from the rehab centre.
I don't think you can really see it but the yellow material is actually the clothing of the inmates that they've hung out the window.  It's an overpopulated jail where inmates can be seen hanging their arms out the window and crowded in their cells.
