I love training, coaching and guiding myself and others to their goals and ambitions and one day hope to make it my own career choice. I’ve got a few competitions coming up. And above all, I love to eat!

What does your involvement in your sport mean to you? Why did you fall in love with it?

The best part about highland games, and strength sports in general, is the family reunion feeling.   Every time we get together to compete we are constantly encouraging and coaching one another.  We want to put forth our best and measure ourselves against our competitor’s best.

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

Chalk, in a sense, unites the strength community.  The barbell, training, and chalk dust are a staple for all strength athletes from Scottish highland games to climbing.  Primo chalk supports their supporters like a family.  This model is a great fit for the tight knit strength sport community and for me.

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

I keep my Nintendo Gameboy with Pokemon Yellow in my truck at all times. Never know when you’ll need to defeat the elite 4.

What does your involvement in your sport mean to you?  Why did you fall in love with it?

Involvement in the highland games to me is a matter of self betterment.  While on the field, I am competing not only with some of the most talented athletes in the world I am also competing with myself. That extra inch on a Braemar stone throw shows me in competition that all the practice and tinge in the gym had paid off.  Any PR shows personal growth and improvement!
I fell in love with the highland games because of the camaraderie among the athletes.  No matter what your level of competition, everyone works to help everyone! We cheer for each other, we celebrate one another’s victories; we are a family.

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

Primo chalk has helped me significantly.  I only use my Primo Chalk ball in practice and in competition because it helps protect my hands, keeping abrasions and scrapes away. I use my hands on my job and need them to be clean and smooth.

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

A surprising fact about me would be in my job.  Almost everyone gets a jaw drop, “Say what?” face when I tell then that my passion is working with premature babies. I take care of 23 week and up babies.  I incubate them monitor their vitals, evaluate how they breathe and save their lives.  I am with their families through the high and lows. I smile with them when they go home; I cry with them when they don’t.
