My journey began back in August 13th, 1988 born in Tallahassee, Florida where I was born. When I was a year old my family relocated to Atlanta, GA where I spent most of my younger years playing various sports from baseball to soccer to football and everything in-between. As an athlete I seemed to always excel in what I did but back then I never really paid much attention to it. By age 11 my parents separated and I moved back to my hometown of Tallahassee with my Mom where it pretty much all began for me. By then I had been in many gyms throughout the years as my Mom was a fitness fanatic but it wasn't until the age of 12 that something hit me and I just became mesmerized by the gym atmosphere and some of the bigger guys in there. There was no questioning what I wanted to do and my Mom knew it to she saw something in my eyes and heart so I immediately joined the local gold's gym. And just trained and read up on everything that I could on nutrition to build up my knowledge as much as I possibly could. I was taking up all the information like a sponge.
In January of 2003 I started my 12 week prep for my first show I was young and really didn't know what it was like to step onstage, but I wanted to get my feet wet and I did. Also I was on the front of the local newspaper the next day! After that show I decided to take a year off pack on some more muscle and come back in 2004 which I did was up 25 lbs and was shredded today the least for 15 and I was very happy with my progress though I didn't get what I thought was fair it didn't slow me down one bit. I had my eyes set on one thing the 2006 NPC Teen Nationals and I was going to do everything I could within the next 27-28 months to come in looking the best I possibly could in which I just recently competed in and though the outcome is not nearly what I had expected I looked the best I could at 5'7 198lbs shredded, dry and hard.
So what's next? Well, I just finished my show for the year and an unreal 3 day photoshoot with John Mitchell who was nothing short of 100% professional and so easy to work with. He is one of the photographers that know how we as bodybuilders have to live for example our eating schedules which he more than willingly worked with me on that aspect. I have been doing photoshoots with John since the age of 15 and I can tell you that I plan on shooting with him throughout my career as he has done nothing but help me really break into the industry with his amazing photos. Thanks for everything John!
