Background

My bodybuilding experience began October 23rd 1999 at the Midwest States Natural (aka Monster Mash). I had decided to pursue bodybuilding following the death of my father due to metastatic carcinoma (stomach cancer).

After his passing, my training intensified to help relieve the pain that I felt inside and I knew I had to try bodybuilding to cope with his loss.

At the Monster Mash, I place fifth as a Light Heavyweight and weighed in at a solid 198 lbs. I was very disappointed but I used it as fuel to my fire.
