I was born and raised in Sacramento, California. It wasn't until about four years ago that I discovered the sport of strongman at a local competitive level. After spectating one show I knew I had to be a part of it and compete. About five months later I did my first show and was hooked. I signed up for every competition that was in the area, or even a short day trip away. As part of the learning process, my body let me know that doing 15 shows in 18 months was not the best idea. Along the way I have collected a few first place finishes at Untamed Strengths Strongest Viking, Northern Nevada's Strongest Man, NorCals Strongest Man, and even made an appearance at the 2018 USS Nationals in New York. I love what this sport has done for me on a personal level, I love the strongman community. I am very much looking forward to putting my passion and efforts to work to grow this sport in my area.
