I started working out around 12 years old. Eventually worked my way up from the YMCA to Golds Gym in Bristol, CT. This gym was right next door from ESPN. I stayed there throughout high school. Eventually did my first show in 1994 while stationed at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS. There was a poster on the base gym of the Southeastern Military Muscle Classic, 8 weeks away. I said, "I'm going to do that show" I had NO CLUE what I was doing. Day of the show, I didn't have any tan, I didn't know how to pose, NOTHING. Designed my routine between prejudging and the night show. Fast forward now to 2007. I closed down a karate studio I owned and needed to do something to stay active. It was then I decided to get back into bodybuilding. From that point, I did 2 shows per year from 2008-2011. As of this posting, I have not been on stage since 2011, and planning to get on stage this fall, November 2015!! First year in the Masters Division as well!! I am both happy and proud to be part of the P4P family, to be able to promote natural, drug free bodybuilding!!
I also promote 3 shows, the NGA Gator Classic, the NGA Central Florida Classic Pro/Am, both in Orlando, FL, and the NGA 5th Annual Florida State Natural in Ormond Beach, FL. All my shows are Pro Qualifiers, and have divisions for everyone!! Come check them out!!
