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.

Christmas Fail... Monday, December 25

When I think of the people I have to prove wrong, the ones who will never respect my dream, understand my struggles, or simply be happy for me being happy, it breaks my heart to know that I added a close family member to that list today, on Christmas.  And out of all the sweetest and totally unexpected acts of kindness that was shown to me this Christmas, this is how I'll remember it, Christmas 2017.

"A" for effort, "F" for fail.
