My grappling experience started during my freshman year of high school when I started wrestling. I finished my senior year as a state finalist, with over 100 career wins. Wrestling lead me to McDaniel College where I wrestled for five years while battling injuries and working on a Masters degree in Strength and Conditioning. I never had the chance to qualify for Nationals, but do have one of the top win records in McDaniel’s history. After college, I started training in jiu-jitsu while coaching wrestling at both Westminster High School (as an assistant coach) and at Liberty High School (as head coach). In 2018, I moved to San Diego, California, in search of a highly competitive jiu-jitsu environment. I found what I was looking for at Atos HQ. Under Andre Galvao, a living legend in the jiu-jitsu community, I did nothing but train jiu-jitsu with world class competitors, sharpening my skills and pushing myself to the limit. After two and a half years, in November of 2020, I received my brown belt under Professor Galvao. I returned to Maryland, carrying all of my knowledge home, and established 150 Grappling to share my passion with others.
I would be remiss in not adding that I am also a Captain in the United States Army National Guard. My time serving has greatly influenced my leadership style and has provided me with a wealth of experiences which have helped mold me into who I am today.

My story is different than Logan’s. I did not start training in a grappling sport until I signed up to train in jiu-jitsu at age 42 with my children (who were 5 and 8 at the time). Six years later, I have progressed through the constraints of age and injury and done things that I am really proud of that demonstrate that our method works. Most recently, in 2020, training out of a garage and basement during a pandemic (with guidance from Logan in California and friends in-state), I medaled at the Pans in gi and in no-gi.
150 Grappling is the culmination of years of conversation and planning between Logan and me. Logan brings the grappling pedigree and the military leadership chops and I bring a host of different things: I am a dad; I have coached children and adults in lacrosse, jiu-jitsu, and other sports for close to a decade. I have created and run two small businesses. Perhaps most critically, I am not some young athlete who will succeed in grappling by virtue of being a young athlete. I am the almost 50 year old guy who is walking proof that this stuff works. Jiu-jitsu has changed every aspect of my life– physical, mental, and emotional– for the better. I want to share that, and this is why 150 Grappling exists.
Logan and I can’t wait to work with you and help you establish your own path forward and goals.
