Bio: 

I have had an interest in physical fitness since I can remember. Growing up, I played baseball and football; developing a love for sports and getting stronger. I began weight lifting in high school and have been seriously dedicated to bodybuilding for around two years now. I plan to compete in my second show soon. I decided that I wanted to work in the fitness industry because of the opportunity to work with individuals who are motivated to be a better person. Helping people through fitness allows me to be passionate and find purpose in my work. 

My roommate and I have been working on developing our own brand for around a year and a half now. We try to share information that can be useful to people who follow us, such as training videos, our thoughts on life/fitness/and anything else that we want to share insight on. I hope to one day own my own bodybuilding focused training facility and to develop a clothing line for gym/life. In my free time I enjoy hiking, reading, going to concerts, and making friends. Music has a large influence on my life and I have an appreciation for all genres. 

I like to live life. Aiming to do something that scares me every day allows me to experience and find things that I enjoy or am passionate about. It is okay to be scared and if you aren't, then you don't care enough. "Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear-not absence of fear."
