Athlete Bio




Sacramento, CA


Bear Creek High School Columbia Southern University

I started karate when I was 7. My family moved to Stockton from the Bay Area in 2001, so my mom searched for activities my brother and I would be able to do together in the Yellow Pages and found karate and swimming. Three things you may not know about me are that I am a big sports fan and can probably watch ESPN all day, I love sushi and can eat it everyday, and my go to app is Pinterest. ...I'm a big sports fan and can probably watch ESPN all day.
