Maybe if I would have filled out this field from Jump Street there wouldn't have been this much mystery....

I have been writing in the MMA world now for a minute and have recently been tapped to take on two book projects for top ranked UFC fighters which will get under way in early 2011. It is great to be writing for Bloody Elbow and I have long admired their approach and their reader base which combined make this the most badass site in all of mixed martial arts. I have been greated with an awesome reception and I sincerely encourage anyone who would like to know more about me, an interview or just mix up a bit of the old back and forth to shoot me an email. You guys (the readers) are what makes every second of this worthwhile and I will continue to strive to bring you the interiews that you deserve.
