I finally entered my first contest when I graduated from college. After about 10 years of competition, winning at least one title per year all ten years (such as Mr. Florida, Mr. Northern Hemisphere, Mr. USA, Mr. America-MW, NPC National Champion-MW, 1st Runner-up IFBB MR. Universe), I stopped competing.
I never really caught the competitive drive back, but learned to enjoy bodybuilding like a kid again. I truly think the best thing anyone can do for health and mobility is to engage in a bodybuilding exercise routine until one's last day standing.
I have appeared on the covers of and/or written articles for most of the top magazines: Iron Man, Muscular Development, Strength & Health, Muscle & Fitness, Muscle Digest, Muscle Mag International, Cultura Fisica, etc. Through bodybuiding.com I hope now to impart some wisdom gained over the years to the babyboomer generation.
