How many shows have you competed in your career?
I have competed in 10 shows in my 2 years as an competitor.

My motivation for the O is competing against the best physiques around the world. Its an adrenaline rush thinking of how many people train throughout the year to earn the opportunity the compete on the biggest stage and the have the opportunity to represent my self is thrilling.
Where did you win your pro card?
I won my pro card at the 2014 Jr.Nationals in Chicago Illinois, Overall winner!
What is your inspiration?
My family inspires me the most! To look at myself knowing that this isn’t just about me! If I am going to do anything, I have to put my all in. Stfu and grind it out!
If you could train with any Mr . Olympia winner, past or present (in his prime ), who would you pick?
This is a hard one! So many greats, but I would have to say Ronnie Coleman. You can’t be a fan of the sport and not know the name. Seen all his training videos. YouTube, Instagram, ect. STRAIGHT BEAST! Also Dorian Yates ! Also a big fan!
Do you prefer to train alone or do you have a training partner?
Since I have started competing, which hasn’t been long. My cousin has been there grinding with me ,pushing me! (S/O to @ev_fit365 ) So a partner!
