Even got into boxing. I enjoy reading and writing, which has been a big part of my life as far back as I can remember. I also enjoy to cook and to cook for others.

One day I hope to be a great champion in the sport of bodybuilding and leave a legacy like so many greats before me.

Q&A'S

  • What happened? Why are you in the Wheelchair?

    Was born with a rare genetic disorder that causes brittle bones, scoliosis and short stature. I’ve had countless surgeries over my 29 years of life. Have broken so many bones along the way.

  • Why did you get started?

    I got started into weight lifting as a means to help strengthen my body. But fell in love with bodybuilding because of the discipline and dedication it took to achieve a goal. I also enjoyed the bond it brought between me and my father as he is an avid bodybuilder.

  • What made you want to compete?

    I wanted to showcase that I could do what normal bodied athletes do. That I could compete at the highest level like a regular bodybuilder. But also to show to myself and my family that life is what you make of it.

  • How did you go about doing it?

    I did a lot of reading on old school lifters and past champions. I asked a lot of people I know who have competed before for advice and techniques. Then I implemented what they taught me into my own routines.

  • What motivates you?

    What motivates me is to be there very best. To look at a loss just like a win and come back stronger then before. But to also show those who are coming up behind me that it is possible to do. That there are only limits you give yourself, to find what you want to be and just go for it.

  • What suggestions or tips do you have for others?

    To always remain humble in victory or defeat. To never surrender because other people say you can’t or speak negatives in your life. You are in control of your life and overall destiny, so go in the gym and give it your all. Go on that stage, and compete with all you have and leave it on the stage.
