My objective is to help others succeed and become the best possible versions of themselves. This is the thread that runs through all of my work, and I am involved in a number of projects that serve as an outlet for this passion. I am the owner and head instructor of Kempo Academy of Darien and hold over 20 years of experience in the martial arts. Currently, I am the COO of the Kempo Academy of Martial Arts organization, the administrator of belt test ceremonies, and teach martial arts to all our instructors. I've also created a YouTube channel called "FightGains" to share my knowledge of martial arts, and a blog called "Iron Wire News" to share my thoughts, experiences, and encourage others to pursue their own success. Further projects include business management, marketing and PR, and website content consulting. I am also an avid learner, enjoy public speaking, and participate in charity and community activities.
