I am 27 years old, had an accident while working as a logger/lumberjack. A dead tree fell on me and crushed the left side of my ribcage, left scapula and resulted in a complete spinal cord injury at t-6-8 region. I have been working out hard since and have had several more obstacles to overcome due to my own personal health as well as my mom’s open heart surgery 3 years ago, the most important and influential person in my life.

Regardless of setbacks, I have continued to move forward. I became a certified personal trainer, started a fitness center and personal training studio and met/married my wife Martina in August of 2004. My focuses are on becoming a champion bodybuilder and building a successful business and making a name for myself in the world of fitness and bodybuilding.
