I have been athletic my entire life and loved playing in every sport I could get my hands on. I ended up settling on soccer as my sport and ended up playing through college as a goal keeper. During my time in high school, I was always on the smaller end of the spectrum. I graduated High School at 6 ft and 145 lbs. Not only was I small, but I really struggled with anxiety and OCD. As I started lifting weights, I noticed that I was seeing improvements in the anxiety and OCD that felt so crippling at times AND I was seeing some muscle for the first time in my life. I ended up gaining confidence in the way I looked as well as conquering my anxiety and OCD issues which, I attribute the improvements to bodybuilding. I competed in my first bodybuilding show in 2007 and was immediately hooked. I have been competing for 13 years and have now done 39 shows with top 6 placings at the national level in classic physique and mens physique. I am a father of 5 kids with a 6th on the way as well as a husband to a beautiful wife. I love being active with the kids, hiking in the summer and living a fit life to the max.
WHAT'S BEEN YOUR BIGGEST ROADBLOCK IN YOUR FITNESS JOURNEY? HOW DID YOU OVERCOME IT?
Gaining muscle! As a natural lean and skinny guy, it has been very challenging to add the size I want over the years. I found the only way I could overcome this was to be absolutely consistent and diligent with my nutrition. I have spent the past 13 years spending a tremendous level of focus and energy on eating what I need to when I need to in order to give my body what it needs to grow.
IF YOU COULD ONLY USE ONE KAGED MUSCLE PRODUCT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
This is a tough one! I would say Micropure Whey Protein Isolate. You really can't beat the quality and taste when it comes to giving the body what it needs to recover day after day so I can continue to put the beating on myself in the gym and force results!
WHEN'S YOUR BIRTHDAY?
WHAT'S YOUR DREAM PRODUCT FLAVOR?
I am a HUGE Reeses fan so I would say Chocolate Peanut Butter!
IF YOU WERE A SUPER HERO, WHAT WOULD YOUR SUPER POWER BE?
If I were a superhero, I would have the superpower of being able to eat all the french toast and burgers I wanted without putting on the excess body fat! What can I say, I love these two foods!
