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.

A Big, Bold, Beautiful Day

All dolled up for the big day.
 I got a good laugh out of these guys when I found out they were top hackers here in the Philippines.
"And I left to go to the bathroom with my phone beside you", I laughed.  I was joking but not really.
Anticipating the announcement of the winners.
 Apparently I was one of them.  Very cool.
I had been messaging Skittles throughout the day, telling him I didn't think I'd win.  The competition was tough and they all had amazing ideas.  I felt like my idea seemed so different than the others.
After the KMC Solutions event, I headed over to The Refined where I was greeted by this big, bold, beautiful badboy.  Tell me that's not the largest lobster you've ever seen in your entire life!!!
 I was also greeted by this... a new motorbike.
He said "jump on" and I said, "do I look like a girl that rides backseat?!"
...so he got off.  I don't ride, I drive, thanks.
