I was born in Quantico, VA. My family move to Philadelphia PA, where I attended the High School for Creative and Performing Arts. I played violin (from the age of 8) and saxophone. In high school, I was able to pursue music as well as my interest in Art. After graduation, I attended Moore College of Art and design, where I studied Graphic design.
I was always ‘artsy’. It wasn’t until college that I became interested in sports. I began to participate in full contact kickboxing. Soon with encouragement from a friend, who was a National level bodybuilder, I entered a weight room and haven’t looked back since!
