I was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and immigrated to the US in 1988.  Throughout my early childhood years, I became so fascinated with martial arts that my cousins and I began creating prearranged form of fighting emulating the like of legendary martial artists. In 1990, I began training in Shotokan Karate under the tutelage of Hanshi Lonnie K. Jones while pursuing a career in mechanical engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology. I received a black belt (Shotokan) in 1994.

Since then I have studied many martial arts forms, like Shorin-Goju-ryu, Okinawan Kempo, Kobudō and Ninjitsu etc. I competed and received awards in many international, national, and regional martial arts tournaments, like AFMA, AAU, Garden State Games, and NASKA.

Martial Arts have been an integral part of my life for the past 28 years. I currently hold 4th Dan in Shotokan karate under American Federation of Martial Arts. Besides my passion for the martial arts, I also work as a principal mechanical engineer in radio frequency power amplifier for ground and airborne based radar telecommunication systems.
