Travel author. Publishing director. Content marketer.
I got my start in fight writing, traveling the country to interview and train with UFC and Jiu-Jitsu World Champions. I wrote for dozens of magazines, was Editor-in-Chief of Lockflow.com, and co-authored instructionals with the likes of B.J. Penn (UFC lightweight and welterweight World Champion) and Marcelo Garcia (one of the greatest jiu-jitsu competitors of all time).
I founded Artechoke Media—a jiu-jitsu publishing house—when I saw the jiu-jitsu world losing faith in books. Artechoke crowdfunded its flagship product, Mastering the Crucifix, which brought together text-based analysis, DVD-style videos, and GIF highlights to create a next generation instructional for the community.
Beyond its ground-breaking cloud instructionals, Artechoke Media also includes:
- Print books by jiu-jitsu authors
- A retro-style mobile game
- An active YouTube channel
In addition to my work with Artechoke, I also work with authors to help them develop their own projects, both in a co-author and a ghostwriter capacity. Contact me to learn more.
