How Did You Get Started?

I got started with bodybuilding when I was at the age of 16. The reason for me starting was a drive to stand out in the crowd of people around me. I wanted to be different but in a good way. A way that would make others look up to me and respect what I have accomplished naturally, through countless hours of hard, dedicated work. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine having so many people look up to what I do and achieve.

So now my goal has not necessary changed, but re-shaped. "I hope to drive as many people possible to change their body, mind and heart into the most motivated being they can become".

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

There are three main reasons I love bodybuilding. One is awesome results I get all over my body doing what I love the most. Second is the respect I gain and portrays onto others and changes peoples' lives. I think I give people a role model to look at when they think they can't change. And lastly I love bodybuilding because of the attention I get when I'm standing among others. Whether it's at the beach, pool, mall, or even a gas station, it doesn't matter where I am I will stand out.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

The one thing that motivates me the most to stay healthy is because of all the benefits it has in the long run of my life. Lowering the risk of cardiovascular problems, respiratory problems, and building immunity to disease are just some of those benefits. Another big thing I take pride in is never using any type of steroid or growth hormone. I feel so much better about myself knowing I have become who I am naturally.

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

The people around me who need me most. Everyone on this earth has a person they look up to in a way, subconsciously or not. I wanted to be that person that helps those people by being a role model. Meeting people with problems and certain issues that I felt I could help gave me a drive to give everyone I could some sort of recognition to keep going. I have helped many people and it is the best feeling in the world. Knowing I can help to save a person's life is what keeps me going to achieve my goals.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

My goal as a bodybuilder in the future is simple. To get as big as humanly possible without ever using steroids or any illegal performance enhancing drug for that matter. When I open a muscle fitness magazine or a bodybuilding mag when I'm eating lunch with my friends, they point at the guys and say "that's impossible without roids". My reply is always the same. If you work hard enough you can become as big as you want, without using any type of steroid.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

If I could tell every bodybuilder on this earth one tip, it would be this; no matter how impossible it may seem to achieve the goal you want, it isn't. The harder work and more strict you become, the further you will go. It all comes down to three words, Dedication, Motivation, and Consistency. There is nothing more valuable as a bodybuilder then the drive to pursue those three words.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

I love watching Ronnie Coleman's inspirational bodybuilding movies but I respect any and all bodybuilders equally.

What Features Do You Use On Bodybuilding.com?

I use just about every aspect of Bodybuilding.com but the top three things that have helped me tremendously are the competition prep articles, the supplement reviews, and the great deals on all the supplements here. I can't find a better price at any of the local supplement shops. I used the contest prep articles to learn everything I needed to take first at the NPC Central Florida Championships.
