How Did You Get Started?

Started as a mixed martial artist doing b-jujitsu, capoeira, kick boxing, boxing. From the martial art training and discipline I got very lean and started to lift weights. Met with a guy by the name of Steve Mares who is a natural bodybuilder, who convinced me to do my first show in Texas at age 15, got sponsored and been hooked since. I compete in all natural competitions, Muscle Mania shows. I am a needle free bodybuilder who relies on science and hard work to build muscle and not on drugs.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

The supplement that gives me great gains would be Creatine Monohydrate. I don't rely on supplements to give me gains but only to boost me. I like taking branch chain amino acids for endurance and protein synthesis after workouts.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Bodybuilding teaches me a lot about life. You can apply bodybuilding to your own life. Bodybuilding builds character and discipline. Bodybuilding makes everything in life seem a lot easier. I love the science behind bodybuilding. Weight+Science=Muscle.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

I stay motivated because living a healthy lifestyle makes me feel great throughout the day and decreases the chances of so many diseases. One big motivator is being able to see my abs; if my abs start to fade away then I hit the diet even harder!

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

Arnold is a great inspiration when it comes to bodybuilding and success. Seeing how far he made it, motivates me to do the same.
