BIO: I am a Firefighter/Paramedic for Reedy Creek Fire Department, which protects The Walt Disney World Resort. I am a husband and proud father of 2 boys, ages 11 and 1. I am a huge Denver Broncos fan. In 2005, I started to workout due to being only 116 lbs. I got tired of always being "the little skinny guy". I wanted to get bigger and stronger for myself and for my career as a Firefighter. Believe it or not, over 9 years I went from 116 lbs. to 170 lbs. I always maintained a clean diet and a good workout routine. This past year with the support of my beautiful wife, I decided to give it a try at the world of competitive bodybuilding. In May, I started training for my first bodybuilding show, which was in August. I entered in the Men's Physique class. I won 1st place in my class, 2nd place in the overall and obtained a Pro Card. I am very humbled from this experience and I will continue to train hard to reach my fullest potential. It's not about the destination, but about the journey. Very excited about this new chapter of my life, as I continue in the NGA Pro division.
