  • When did you start training?: When I was 16 years old, in an effort to get bigger and stronger for football. I found out that I was a better bodybuilder than a football player.
  • What is your Motivation to compete, stay in shape?: To look fit and muscular at any age, and to inspire others to do the same. I have an inner desire to better myself constantly, and to glorify God by taking what he has blessed me with and doing the best job I can with it.
  • What goals do you have in bodybuilding?: I want to be healthy as I age so that I can remain very active and mentally sharp. I want to emulate the great fitness icons of our time... men like Jack LaLanne. Bodybuilding is the key to health and longevity. It is the closest thing to the fabled Fountain of Youth. Bodybuilding is a lifelong path and passion for me. I do it because I love it.
  • What goals do you have outside of bodybuilding?: To get as many people into shape as I can! I want to be a fitness evangelist, carrying the message of improved health and strength to anyone who will listen.
  • What advice would you give to beginners?: It's the path that makes the champion; you win on a day by day basis by doing your best at everything you do. Remember that fitness is a lifestyle, and it is not a race, but a marathon.
