I am originally from Ewa Beach, Hawai’i. I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico with my wife and three daughters, one of whom has Dravet Syndrome. I am a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu blue belt, a rudeboy, a terrible skateboarder, a craftsman, a lifelong Madonna fan, a hardcore kid, a warrior poet, a washed-up backpack rapper, a good listener, uncomfortable writing this, an enthusiastic user of Evernote, a musician, and a very good cook. I’m passionate about social justice, setting and crushing goals, and creating meaningful dialogue. I particularly enjoy creating a dialogue about men and mental illness and emotional vulnerability/transparency. In addition to blogging at A Bareknuckled Affair, my work has appeared at The Good Men Project and The Daily Dot. I am interested in submitting content for blogs/websites/journals and collaborating on projects, to include reviews and giveaways. Connect with me on FacebookLinkedIn, and Google+. I also have a collection of humor/fiction pieces on Medium. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Great to see this page from Prof. Kris Shaw’s FB page. Kumusta na. Lived in Hawaii as well, you may know my familia (last name: Doctolero) from Ewa Beach. Have 4 daughters myself. Would like to know more about your brand and see if I can help you market here in Battle Creek, MI (mainly in my BJJ school: SMB and Mushin BJJ. Will be following your blogs. As far as comic art goes, have you ever seen the works of Rudy Nebres from NJ? used to work with Neil adams / marvel comics. Salamat.

    1. Arnel, thanks for the comment. I’m sorry, I don’t know the Doctolers. My family lived Kalihi/ Palama for a long time. I will look up your schools. I don’t think I know Nebres’s work, thanks for the tip.
