Raised in brooklyn, NYC, music and sports were the muses of life. Hip-hop was the soundtrack to life, arguments about who's the best rapper or athlete was everyday. Writing, music and competition was therapy. Growing up in NYC meant you had to make decisions early, Giants or Jets, Mets or Yankees, Biggie, Nas or Jay-Z. Jaime chose the Giant’s and the Mets and in the 80’s it was fun times. Number 27, of big blue, Rodney Hampton was mashishing linebackers and the Met, Darryl Strawberry was hitting home runs, the 90’s were a different story. The 90’s rose also rose the arguably the best basketball team of its era,The Chicago Bulls and the great Michael Jordan. The knicks were a hapless organization and Jordan and the Bulls ensured that. So becoming a Bulls fan was an easy choice. Jaime as an adult found martial arts, first dabbling in Muay Thai then to Jiu-jitsu, Wrestling, Boxing and MMA. He has trained in Jiu-jitsu for the past five years, earning a blue belt. Jiu-jitsu is physical chess and being a practitioner you learn lessons that you take off the mat. The same can be said for Boxing, MMA, Wrestling or Muay Thai, through combat sports you learn humility or it smacks you in the face. He has competed in amateur boxing, wrestling, jiu-jitsu and mma. Now he’s filling out his dreams and doing what he loves love most; writing and being around competition. And if you’re wondering about Who's the best MCs, Biggie, Jay-Z, or Nas? Biggie Smalls is the illest.
