Founder | CEO
I am a resourceful and creative broadcast manager, producer, designer and journalist recognized for motivation, vision, and creative expression. While spending most of the past decade working overseas, my love of sports, technology and creative evolution has allowed me to venture past what many consider to be “the standard.”
Pushing the boundaries is what drives me to excel in all aspects of the creative world. Without trend-setters, there would be no followers.

I may not wake up in the morning pissing excellence like Rickey Bobby but that doesn’t stop me from trying. I’m a huge Mixed Martial Arts fan that grew up reading Black Belt Magazine, wrestling and watching Bruce Lee Movies. Over the past 16 years I have written and photographed for many U.S. Marine and Army publications but have now decide to venture out and write about something that I love, MMA.
I am your typical Cali born girl, raised in Miami. I am a loud mouthed, edgy Latina who speaks her mind and doesn’t apologize for it. My greatest passion in life is sports. I am a die hard fan of the San Fransisco 49′ers, but I have to say the day I was introduced to MMA my life changed. It is by far the ultimate sport and I cannot contain the excitement it brings to my life.
I am proud to be a contributor of the MMA community. My favorite fighter of all time is Georges St. Pierre. To me he is the epitome of what an MMA fighter should be.
I believe the greatest lesson in life is never be afraid to pursue your dreams, don’t be afraid to change anything that doesn’t make you happy.
