Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? Valencia Community College. No degree.
 
What was your job before you started fighting? I had numerous jobs. I worked at McDonald’s, Burger King, and Blockbuster. I was a hardwood stair carpenter for a little while and then became a barback at one of the top bars downtown in Orlando.
