How Did You Get Started?

Saw my first muscle magazine in junior high school and was hooked. I have been competing now, for almost 10 years.

I have had moderate success so far competing in the NPC... winning the 2005 Heart of Dixie open division overall title, and winning the open heavyweight division at the Alabama championships this past August. I have placed many times in many shows, but always long for more success.
