How did you start competing?

I started competing in 2017 because my wife was already a professional Figure competitor and we were living the lifestyle together. I wanted to see how I would stack up on stage and it turned out great and hooked me to continue this passion of mine. One year later I turned professional and now I am focused on getting better day in and day out to be competitive in the professional ranks.

How long have you been competing?

I have been competing for 3 years as a bodybuilder.

What is your proudest moment/achievement in your sport?

Winning the overall and earning my pro card at the 2018 Junior Nationals.

What are your favorite foods to eat?

I usually keep it simple with a burger and fries or sushi when I indulge.

What do you like to do outside of the Gym?

I really like to spend time outside when I am not at the gym. I grew up a country kid and enjoyed hunting and fishing and outdoors life so when I get the opportunity to do so that’s what I do. Which makes Colorado a great place to live.

Who are your inspirations or people you look up to?

Some inspirations I have are Ronnie Coleman, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Tom Brady. Solely for their work ethic and professionalism at all times.

What’s something about you that not many people know?

One interesting thing that not many people know is that I was much smaller all the way until I was 24-25 years old. I graduated college at 165lbs and played football as a slot receiver. I am now about 100lbs more than that currently and a totally different physique. Consistent actions lead to consistent results!
