My teachers are everything to me. I would not be here without them. In chronological order my teachers are Doug Swenson, Arash Dibazar, Vince Kelvin, David Garrigues, BNS Iyengar, and Simon Borg-Olivier.

I found yoga while wrestling at University of Oklahoma. After my Master’s I learned more yoga to release tension and redesign my self-image.

During my PhD at the University of Florida I began to teach yoga. It was easy since I’d taught wrestling and engineering for years. I traveled for work so I taught where I traveled.

I liked my feedback as a traveling teacher so after graduation I trained yoga in India and began teaching around the nation. I’ve been on a “Teaching Tour” ever since.
