When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training back in high school. I remember watching the UFC and telling people that if I don’t play for the Pittsburgh Pirates, I’m going to fight for the UFC. 

What ranks and titles have you held? Held two amateur titles and a professional title back in Pittsburgh.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I completed my degree at Slippery Rock University. I majored in psychology and minored in philosophy. 

What was your job before you started fighting? I worked everything from construction to waiting tables, from bouncing/bartending to fast food. Anything I could do that allowed me to train as much as possible.
