3rd Degree Black Belt (Sandan)

Head Instructor, Your Best Defense Martial Art Center

A student of Master Tim Loomis since 2003, I received my first black belt at the age of 12. I began teaching in 2010 as a Senpai (Junior Instructor).  After countless hours on the mat as both a student and teacher, I was promoted Sensei and Head Instructor in Goshin Jujutsu. I am in charge of curriculum for Jujutsu classes at The Silent Mind.

I play several musical instruments in my spare time, as well as practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  I am currently pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering Technology at The University of Akron.
