  • When did you start training?: At the age of 22
  • What is your Motivation to compete, stay in shape?:It still amazing to me to see what an individual can do to their body as they prepare for a show. Takes time, discipline and self control. Love it! Very challenging and I’m a sucker for challenges. They keep me going and makes life exciting!
  • What goals do you have in bodybuilding?: To keep fitness a top priority on my list and hopefully get a supplement contract to continue to motivate myself to thrive for more fitness success and knowledge. I'd like to target and educate as many Hispanics in our community to learn and be conscious about better and healthier foods to avoid/reduce being the 2nd highest population in the US with diabetes. And to definitely continue to motivate and educate other people who are eager to stay healthy and fit by telling them about personal fitness experience and habits.
  • What goals do you have outside of bodybuilding?: My career and family are the next two important things in my life along with my religious beliefs of Catholism. Currently, I am in territory sales manager for an orthotic and prosthetic company, New Life Brace and Limb. I work with diabetic and trauma patients whom have lost limbs. My job is very rewarding. To be able to give patients a new limb and get them to walk again after the loss of a limb, is an amazing feeling. My lifestyle as figure competitor and fitness model motivate my accounts (doctors’ offices) and patients to want to be healthier for a better and healthier life. My goal is to motivate as many people as possible with nutrition and an active lifestyle. The love and support of my family and friends in all the interests I have in my life is a true blessing and very inspirational. At times, they are what keep me going and aspiring for more success in life.
  • What advice would you give to beginners?:Always “KNOW YOUR GOAL”. Competing and fitness is a “lifestyle”. If you like it, then you will have fun with it. If you have fun with it, then you will be happy with the lifestyle change. There will be ups and downs as a competitor, and you will find out a lot about yourself (what you like, what you don’t like) and make changes for the better with your health and fitness goals. Work hard, stay focused and positive in the gym and in your work and family life – and you will find true, genuine happiness and life fulfillment.
