The son of a Navy/Golden Gloves boxer, boxing was always a part of Hans’ life. As a youth, Hans was a 4-sport athlete (baseball, hockey, wrestling, and football) before turning his attention to music through his teens and early 20s, touring throughout the States in various rock, punk, metal, and hardcore bands. Changing directions, Hans eventually returned to one of his first loves, boxing. He trained throughout Québec and Vermont, primarily at Club de Boxe de l’Impulse under top trainer Jim Glover. After setbacks and injuries, Hans transitioned to coaching. He is a registered Level 1 Coach with USA Boxing.
