Shadowboxer of the Month

HOMETOWN?
Brooklyn, NY ????????

WHY BOXING?

There is something incredibly empowering about the strength, endurance, agility and confidence you can gain through boxing. Something training with Jaws Nelson taught me in particular, has been to find balance between power and quickness in order to achieve efficiency through my strength and fluidity in my movement. It's become my mantra throughout all my training, even outside of shadowbox because it has allowed and inspired me to become a better and more focused athlete.

FAVORITE PUNCH?
Lead hand hook. I usually like to set it up with a combo ending on a cross. It's my favorite and probably most powerful punch.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU'RE NOT BOXING?
Full time Legal Manager at American Express. Occasionally I can be found puppy sitting, casually napping, doing a ton of cycling and spinning and training for my next big race!

WHAT'S YOUR MOTTO?
"Hard work makes the dream work." I repeat this a lot, internally, mostly as a reminder that no one will ever fight for me the way I can fight for myself and I truly believe that we have an incredible amount of power to achieve our goals but that can only be done by staying hungry, always, and working hard.
