Started in 1995 as a trainer in Georgia. First fighter I worked with (pro-level) was Keith Mcknight (heavyweight from Tennessee; I served as his cutman for the Phil Jackson fight).

Got trained by numerous former boxers in California (Mark Wills, Damion Franklin,etc) on how to work a corner effectively.

Got a big break in life, when a boxing gym opened up 10 minutes from my house. Went in, talked to the owner.....and have been with the gym since 1998.

Best advice i ever got was, don't look for the superstar, or the medal winners...look for the one's fighting with heart & determination. Superstars fade away, heart lasts forever.
