Meet an individual fueled by a deep passion for training and the exhilarating world of competition.

  • What led to your current situation in a wheelchair?

    My journey to being in a wheelchair started due to a car accident. I was a passenger when the driver, who had fallen asleep at the wheel, caused our vehicle to collide with a power pole. The impact propelled us an astonishing 93 feet through the air before we crashed back down.

  • What initially inspired you to embark on your fitness journey?

    From the beginning, I've had a profound love for training, which has remained unwavering over the years.

  • What drove you to take your passion for fitness into the realm of competition?

    The drive to continuously challenge and better myself led me to the world of competitive bodybuilding. It's a sport that demands both physical and mental fortitude, offering a perpetual pursuit of self-improvement.

  • How did you navigate the path towards competitive bodybuilding after your accident?

    Following my injury, I reached out to several fellow competitors, including Nick Scott, within a couple of weeks. I confidently told them that I'd be turning pro within a year—quite a bold statement!

  • What serves as your primary motivation in the face of adversity?

    My motivation is twofold: the unyielding desire to constantly improve and the aspiration to debunk misconceptions surrounding disabilities. The fact that people I've never met personally reach out to share how I've inspired them to begin training is a powerful reminder that the journey is worthwhile.

  • What advice do you offer to those who may be facing challenges in their own pursuits?

    I wholeheartedly believe that no matter the challenge, pursuing your goals is always possible. This principle extends beyond bodybuilding to every facet of life. Train purposefully and fuel your ambitions with ample nutrition to achieve substantial growth.
