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.

Graduation Day for Us Startups

Today was the big day of the VIA Startup Summit
... aka, my graduation from my 6 month incubation period with Space for Ingenious.
I think the coolest thing today was meeting the boss babe behind Angkas and then being asked to do a media interview.  Turns out I actually know her, Angie, "The Angkas Lady".  She's the gorgeous wife of my friend's business partner.  Apparently I met her over a year ago but today I freaked out when I found out she was the one who created Angkas.  In my excitement, after all I am a HUGE fan of Angkas, I laughed and blurted out "I love you" to her.  Oh gosh, it was so funny.  I do love her though for creating Angkas.  It's made my life so easier to get around.  No more walking 60kms a week!!! 
I gave my speech today though it wasn't exactly a minute.
And then after several other speakers and many hours later, I was called up again for my certificate.
Viola... I can't believe it's been 6 months already!!!
