How Did You Get Started?
I really got serious 7 years ago at the age of 34 (it's never too late). At that time my main adjective was to lose weight. I had a waistline around 36.5 in. - not a comfortable feeling. I went to a fitness center and chose to use a personal trainer.
I trained six month with my personal trainer, he got my waistline down to 32 inches, plus I had some muscle definition. I was thinking that I just reinvented myself in six month. If I apply more time to this what would happen? There is one key ingredient and that is consistency... I live by that.
I also read fitness magazines, utilize Bodybuilding.com to the fullest, and I had a friend that was already competing at a pro level that was giving me advice. Now today I have won two overall shows and have the desire to do more. For me this is a way of life.
It will never take a day, but it will take some time to achieve your physical goals… never give up. Now I would like to give thanks to all my friend at LA Fitness (Andorra) and World Gyms (NE Philly) for all of their support.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?
The reason why I love it... it makes me feel good on the inside. Not everyone can do it to this extreme. To do bodybuilding you have to love it. You are committing a lot of time and effort towards an ultimate goal. I also love the reaction I get from people on the streets... it gives me the feeling of being different. This is not what I do... this is what I love to do; I have a deep passion for this sport.
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
I plan on making my round in the NABBA and then I will move on to another sanction to try to gain a pro card.
What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?
Lift Smart - Lift with good form and adequate amount of weight.
Be True To Yourself - If you are lacking in an area work on it instead of your favorite body part... like arms.
Stay Humble - Leave your attitude at the door.
