Born and raised in MICHIGAN I started to get into sports at a young age. I loved how it made me feel to work hard and accomplish my goals on and off the field. Soon after I seen that I had the ability not only to change my own life for the better through health and wellness, but others too! I went along to get my certification through nationally accredited certifications and receiving my degree in kinesiology from W.S.U. I always loved a challenge so I then pursued fitness competitions where I received my IFBB Pro card in 2013. Being a natural athlete this was a great accomplishment. Eventually I started getting into the commercial print realm through fitness and training. I am grateful to be featured in most of the biggest Exercise magazines such as Flex, men's health, muscle and fitness and more. I finally hit my first magazine cover through muscle and performance in 2015. If you have a vision and you want to make it real, you need to have the faith and belief that it can be done.
