Virginia Beach, VA 23452
I was born in Norfolk Virginia with three brothers and two sisters. Health and Fitness became an important part of my lifestyle due to my participating in athletics at an early age. The effect and importance of physical well-being and strength gains in activities ranging from daily living to competitive sports fascinated me. I then became intrigued by the thought of the role I could play in developing the strength and well-being of others. I ventured out into the field of bodybuilding at the age of 38. I entered my first competition at the age of 40 and won both master and open, been bodybuilding ever since and became a professional after only five years. I strongly believe in exercise as preventative medicine in maintaining a strong and healthy body . Although the importance of health and fitness are often camouflaged by our endless quest for physical beauty, the benefits actually go a lot further. We can lower cholesterol, improve heart function, change body composition, and overall well being. Exercise is truly the "Wonder Drug."
