Jeff has been a competitive athlete and martial artist all of his life.  He played football and was a powerlifter in high school and college, after which he lived in Japan for two years and studied various martial arts.  After returning to the U.S., Jeff completed his education and became a corporate lawyer and entrepreneur while continuing to train various martial arts, lift weights, and practice yoga.  He started his first gym approximately 10 years ago, and in 2022 decided to take everything he has learned as a student or member of countless martial arts studios and gyms to create the ultimate training facility-Bushido JiuJitsu • Strength.  Through Bushido, Jeff is able to share his passion for the “way of the warrior,” and building character through martial arts training and weightlifting.​

Outside of Bushido, Jeff is a successful corporate lawyer with over 20 years of experience.  He is one of less than 10 lawyers in Texas named to the 2022 Super Lawyers list in the International practice area. 2022 marked the 10th consecutive year he was selected. Practicing in Dallas, New York, and Tokyo, Jeff's tenacity, creativity, and business acumen have made him a trusted adviser of executives of multi-national corporations, principals of prominent investment firms, and entrepreneurs.
