Roger is from Lewisburg, WV and was born on June 29, 1981. Having always been the "skinny kid" that was picked on growing up and then being dumped by his then girlfriend on his birthday, Roger decided to take up weight training and transformed himself from 125 pound to walking around today at over 200 pounds. He has made quite the impact on the fitness industry since being discovered back in early 2009, but he has actually been helping others reach their fitness goals as far back as 2002. Roger was a fitness instructor and personal trainer at the Greenbrier Valley YMCA from 2002-2004 and also worked for two GNC stores from 2004 to 2006.
It would be in the last couple of years, though, that would lead him to where he is today. Roger was writing motivational posts in his blog on BodySpace after working his way back from a shoulder injury and depression when he was encouraged to submit an article to Bodybuilding.com for possible publication. After his article was read, he was offered an opportunity to become a regular contributor to the popular bodybuilding website. In the end of 2009, his first year in the industry, Roger was named Bodybuilding.com Male Writer of the Year. Along with the Female Writing Award, it is the highest honor a writer can receive in the fitness industry. Roger also contributes to Iron Man Magazine, the oldest and one of the most respected fitness publications in the world.
He has done more in the fitness world than writing. From September 2010 through April 2011, Roger was co-host of the popular fitness radio show, "No Holds Barred" on the Bodybuilding Lounge. Roger has even been mentioned on the industry's longest standing multimedia radio show, Pro Bodybuilding Weekly.
Roger's work doesn't stop with the fitness world, however. Having been a past child victim of domestic violence and staying with his mother and siblings at a local shelter, Roger has been associated with Family Refuge Center for over 20 years now. He is the first person in FRC's history to have stayed as a victim in the shelter, worked on the paid staff, and served on the Board of Directors. Roger has told his story to thousands of people at various trainings and events and he has even been the subject of two documentary videos. Today, Roger also is the Support Coordinator for the Child and Youth Advocacy Center in Lewisburg, WV.
