What does your involvement in your sport mean to you?

For me it has allot to do with giving back. I want the sport to grow, and I want to pass on what I’ve learned to others. How do I do this may you ask? As an athlete and as one of the Texas State Chairman for North American Strongman Corporation. Helping others promote their events as well as run my own events. that’s how I give back to my community. By the team of athletes that have joined me since my arrival here in Texas. from just myself training and purchasing my own gear, to growing a small team of athletes willing to train and compete in Texas. So for me, I’ve done all I can to grow the sport I love, and I love STRONGMAN.

What made you fall in love with it?

Honestly its the competition, comradery and the drive to push myself past my limits.

Out of all the product sponsorships out there, why is Primo the one for you?

Because you gave me a shot. The little guy, the average Joe. you gave me a product that can keep up with the Hard work and dedication of my training and I respect that. Cause if it doesn’t work, I don’t use it. Like ya’ll at primo chalk, I believe hand care is Important. I was taught early on in my lifting career that it is Important. This is something we both value, and that’s why Primo is the one for me.

What is a surprising fact about yourself that we wouldn’t expect to hear?

I was a competitive golfer and considered going pro at one point in time.
