BIO: I am a husband to my wife of 27 years, Stacy, and the father of three: Edie (and her husband Jacob, aka, Speed), Ivan, and Oliver. I am proud to have attended two schools: Northland Christian School (Houston, TX) and Harding University (Searcy, AR). I have enjoyed weight training for over 25 year, but only started competing in bodybuilding in 2017 upon the unexpected advice of Steve Weingarten of Louisville, KY, who is now my coach. In this arena, I hope to represent my God and family to the best of my ability.
