in mechanical engineering technology at
Wentworth Institute of Technology, located in Boston, MA.
After graduating from college, he continued training hard and educating others
in the arts of BJJ and Muay Thai, all while working a full-time job as an engineer.
Needless to say, a very difficult task that he was able to complete with ease.

He gave an amazing performance despite being out of the cage for several years.
We are extremely proud of Eddie! We are looking forward to his next time in the cage!
