How Did You Get Started?
I started lifting after I got out of High School in the summer of 1973. I was a small built person. When I first got my draft card at 18 years of age, I weighed 130 lbs. My initials days of unsophisticated training took place at the basement of a friend's house with very little equipment, dirt floor basement. I loved it so much that I continued weightlifting for the way it made me feel and look. I entered my first bodybuilding contest in Tennessee in 1986. I was rewarded for my efforts at this contest by placing third and went home with a third place trophy.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?
I love the way I feel and look. I have a lot of energy and strength and can pretty much do any physical activity. I feel young and enthusiastic as I train with young people and keep up with current trends in music and other activities. It stabilizes stress and keeps the endorphins flowing.
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
I would like to enter many more contests in my fifties and sixties.
What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?
I think that it is very important to get a goodnight's sleep, at less 8 hours per night. It is also important to follow your workout plan.
