I grew up in Guyana, a former British Colony in South America where manners maketh the man. Raised in Roman Catholic tradition by the Jesuits, my siblings and I are all Roman Catholic with a Muslim mother of Arab descent and a Catholic father of Indian descent. My mother’s side consisted of the Pathans or horseback warriors which is probably why I have a devout interest in weapons based martial arts and since my father’s ancestors were from India this would explain my deep seated desire to continue learning more philosophy inspired from the ancient Vedic traditions of yoga.
Despite outside influences from the Marine Corps, College, various career paths from public school teacher, a versatile fitness expert to the extremely rich and not so famous and everyone in between, I have never lost sight of my passion for training, teaching and writing. After a major TBI I had to relearn how to write and give more thought to engaging my left side, things that I never had to think about before.When you lose your cognition, your career and go from having a fabulous life to homelessness there are specific things that you have to do to get your life back.
