What impact has boxing had on your life?

Boxing has allowed me to grow as a person and it has given me more confidence than I have ever had. It's allowed me to be able to feel more comfortable with who I am. Beyond the mental and emotional growth, I have gotten in the best shape of my life. To sum it up in one sentence, boxing has given me calmness in a hectic life.

Why did you choose to join Think Boxing?

I chose Think Boxing because I love both therapy and boxing! I am currently a graduate student in my third year in the Clinical Counseling Program at the Citadel. I learned about Think Boxing through one of my professors. Having the opportunity to put my love for boxing and helping others mental health is a dream come true!

What makes you unique as a coach?

All of the coaches in Think Boxing bring their own uniqueness and expertise. My uniqueness comes from my education and experience. I'm in my third year of grad school studying Clinical Counseling and I'm the 2019, 141 Lb. South Carolina Golden Glove Champion!

What do you think is important for others to know about you?

My girlfriend Mary Ann is also a Think Boxing trainer. We recently got a puppy and I love the musician/poet Tupac so much that she agreed to let me name our dog Tupac. I love helping people find themselves through boxing. I will help anyone push themselves and I will always be patient. During sessions I will be your biggest supporter and help you learn to be your own biggest supporter in life.
