How Did You Get Started?

I was spending a lot of time at the gym and I began to meet a lot of people who had either competed in the past or were going to compete in the near future. After talking to them I knew that it was something that I had to do. I was introduced to Jack Friend of NW Muscle. He helped me through my contest prep and I won the Novice Middleweight and Overall classes at the 2007 Seven Feathers Classic. From that point bodybuilding has been a healthy addiction.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

For Pre-workout I like BSN's NO Xplode. After my workout I like Nature's Best Isopure protein. If I am going to miss a meal I will have a Syntha 6 protein shake by BSN or a Chef Jay's Tri-O-Plex bar. For pre-contest fat loss, I use Jetfuel by German American Technologies. For a daily vitamin supplement, I have taken the Animal Pak vitamins. All of these supplements have helped me to make gains along the way.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Through bodybuilding, I have learned what it takes to look and feel good. It has taught me to be much more disciplined and challenged me on a daily basis. I love bodybuilding because it enables me to focus my energy on something positive that will continue throughout my life. Bodybuilding allows me to see myself at my best and strive to improve and maintain that size and conditioning.

It is a lifelong learning process. I have learned a lot, but I still have so much to learn about both my body and the diet and training process. I have also been able to help others get started on their bodybuilding journey. I am no expert and I do not solicit advice, but I have been happy to help when different people have come to me with questions and that feels good.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

In addition to looking and feeling better on a day to day basis, I always strive to improve my personal bests. The next time I step on stage I want to look better than I ever have before. I also want to be physically able to run around and enjoy my life outside of the gym.

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

As a child I was not in the best shape. At a certain point in my life I decided that I was going to make any changes that I needed in order to look and feel the way that I always wanted to. After going back and forth for a bit, I found bodybuilding as a way to reach that goal.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I am taking some time off in order to put on some size. I plan to compete in 2011. I have only done NPC shows, but I am considering competing in a Musclemania competition in the near future.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Step one, figure out the best diet for you. Eat often and be disciplined. No one is ever big enough so don't let that thought hold you back from doing your first show. The experience is amazing and you will not regret it.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

I respect a lot of different people. Some of my favorites are Flex Wheeler, Victor Martinez, Dexter Jackson, Frank Zane and Lee Haney.
