Hi there! I’m Rex, but my closest friends usually call me “Rexkwondo” as a joke (bonus points if you know what movie that’s from…). I am a Healthcare Sales professional, Taekwondo athlete, instructor and coach (the nickname just made a lot more sense, eh?).
As I mentioned in my introductory blog post, I have competed in sports, first basketball and most recently Taekwondo, for the greater portion of my life (and the injuries to match lol). I am currently a fourth degree black belt and World Taekwondo Federation certified master instructor. I am very actively involved in the Taekwondo community and frequently participate in events to promote and help grow the sport, as well as the traditional martial art aspect.
When I am not working, training or teaching I like to try new restaurants and types of food. I am also an avid podcast listener, especially anything informative or comedy-related (e.g. The Joe Rogan Experience). I am always on the lookout for new fun outdoors activities and events and want to make an effort to travel more.
I want to encourage people I encounter or reach to take active steps to improve their quality of life, both physical and mental. One of the reasons I created this platform is to improve my creativity. If I can positively affect people in the process, then it is truly a “win-win” situation.
