NPC Physique Competitor, Fitness Model & Personal Trainer
Growing up I played just about every sport and this eventually led to my recruitment onto a United States Swimming team. I pursued swimming at the highest national levels and reached an elite level competing with the best in the world. I then continued swimming in college as a NCAA athlete and was introduced to weight training. At this point I was a lean ripped 160lbs built to sprint with the best swimmers in the country. I guess I took to weight training like a fish to water and by the time I had graduated college reached 190lbs of solid lean muscle and appeared in the college issue of Muscle and Fitness Magazine. I began training in gyms across new york for the first time and actually worked out in the same facilities as some of today's top olympia level competitors.
In my youth I found bodybuilding to be a true passion and my desire to put on massive amounts of muscle insatiable. I reached my maximum weight of 230 pounds when I was 25 when I realized that I was looking to achieve something new and different. I no longer chased the bulk and the mass but instead the quality muscle that comes from years of hard dedicated training while maintaining a lean physique year round. I dropped my weight down while continuing to increase my strength and the density of the muscle fiber I was building. I sought to achieve a similar physique to the golden age bodybuilders with less mass appeal and more aesthetic quality lines and the pure beauty of a balanced muscular physique. I continue to chase this goal each and every day as I train my body and mold this human clay into the picturesque statue I desire. I now workout 6 days a week at 5am without fail, it starts my day off right and gets me ready to conquer the world.
