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.

Intensity on the Streets and in the Field

Most days I honestly don't feel like I live in a foreign country and then I turn the corner and am reminded that I do.  Military and police on high alert today as rumor has it the Chinese President is in the city.
Walking back from my coaching today, yeah, this was the scene on numerous streets... wow.
Reminded me of Korea, definitely, like when they have street protests.
 Super blurry pictures of a super intense new sport I picked up tonight -- full contact rugby.
I recently took up touch rugby but I have no idea who though touch rugby and full contact rugby could even be called the same sport because they're so different.  It's like comparing hockey with soccer.
