Fitness is my passion and I want to be the best possible version of myself. I want my family and friends to look up to me and be inspired.
d. What’s your greatest success in lifting?
My greatest success so far was last year. I was at 187 pounds and 5% body fat at the end of my prep. I did it on my own and only for myself.
e. What music do you listen to when training?
I listen to mostly hard rock when I'm lifting. Disturbed, Skillet and Hatebreed to name a few.
f. Who is your weightlifting inspiration?
I would have to say Dorian Yates "The Shadow" is a big inspiration to me. A guy from the streets to Mr. Olympia. I love his story and could tell he was in it for the bodybuilding and not the glory.
g. Do you have any shout outs or people you’d like to thank?
I would like to thank my wife Jessica for supporting me and sharing this passion with me. My lifting partner Ed "Eazy" Chelby for keeping me mentally in the game. Also, I would like to thank Supplement Giant for supporting me and I'm proud to be one of their athletes.
