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.

Just Another Day for Me

At The Refined today a winner from a local contest was treated to a makeover.
It was a full manover.

He came in a super shy and reserved man but left absolutely glowing and so happy.

Honestly, it was such a sweet moment to witness so I had to catch some pictures of it.

It made me think of my father, after all today IS Father's Day.

This is the very last picture I took with my dad; it was over a year ago now.
Father's Day should be about celebrating your dad and spending time with him 
but I'm here and he's there, so I worked, worked, and worked some more.

Eight hours and 330 pages later... if only my dad could see what 
I'm doing here in the Philippines. 
Maybe he'd understand it, accept it, and perhaps even be proud of it.
