This is how I honor him and all our warriors who died to give us freedom.

A: Yes for the last 11 years when time permits and life allows me. I've done Level 3 and higher in Krav Maga and still working on it. I have taken Boxing, BJJ, Muay Thai, Hapkido, and some Kali. I also have taught Level 1 Krav Maga. I love studying all art forms and see myself as a lifelong student.
Q: Are you a Christ Follower?
A: I am. I gave my heart to the Lord Jesus Christ when I was 4 years old. I've been a Christian for a very long time. This journey has been rough and lots of ups and downs. By His grace I am here today doing Stand Strong. Mostly because of my sins and my weaknesses I started making art to express my passion/ my views to inspire others. There is hope in this lost world, I pray this art pushes you to see Christ and that there is a war for your life. NEVER SURRENDER!
Q: How long have you been doing Stand Strong?
A: Since the end of 2008, when I had the vision for Stand Strong. There has been a lot of obstacles in the way, some days I wish I was further along. I believe this is where God has me. Learning to enjoy the process and work hard. More than that life is short, redeem the time and make it count.
