About ME

My love-affair with pro wrestling began before it was cool.  I was a skinny middle school kid, infatuated with wrestling, idolizing super-stars, doodling muscle men cartoons during class and soaking up WWF magazines when I probably should have been studying. 

I started working odd jobs at age fifteen so that I could afford wrestling camp.  A typical day for me consisted of school from 8:00AM - 3:00PM, work from 4:00PM-9:30PM and training from 10:00PM-12:00AM.  It was exhausting and it negatively impacted my education but by the time I was eighteen, I had signed with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).  I was one of their youngest acquisitions at that point, joining their farm league, Ohio Valley Wrestling, located in Louisville, Kentucky. It was literally my dream come true. It was also the first time in my life I had been outside of Los Angeles.  I was very green, but I grew up fast.  I had no choice!

My WWE TV debut took place on RAW in a match against Stevie Richards when I was twenty years old.  The excitement of my debut experience was overshadowed by a miscue in the ring that left Stevie with broken bones in his face.  For the record, Stevie was the first and the last person I ever hurt wrestling.  For the next several years on WWE, my character as the "Masterpiece" developed.  It was a fantastic experience for me as I found myself facing off against childhood heroes such as Shawn Michaels, Rick Flair, Triple H, the Hardy Boys, Edge and others.  We traveled the world together, including trips to entertain the troops in Afghanistan and Iraq - which to this day, I consider one of the highlights of my life.  

In 2007 I had my first experience with Independent Wrestling.  These years were a formative - allowing me time to get healthy, travel internationally and really understand the other side of the business.  I also explored acting until 2009, when I re-signed with WWE.  

For many years now, I have been wrestling independently.  I have traveled to every continent (except Antarctica) and all of the United States.  I still love to wrestle, but I am also focusing more now on sharing knowledge, helping others and working behind the scenes.  

I am one of the lucky few who actually achieved their dream.  I had a vision and a work ethic and I was fearless.   Along the way I faced adversity - both physically and mentally. And, despite some rough patches, I am grateful for the experience.  

This chapter of my life builds on 20 years of training, traveling and working with some of the most dynamic entertainers in the world.   Whether in the ring, the gym or the boardroom, I will leverage my experience and influence to help achieve your goals.  Hit me up if you'd like to collaborate!
