I moved to Georgia Jan.of 1987 to attend Life Chiropractic College. 6 months later began lifting weights at Gold's Gym in Marietta, Ga (where I now live). This is where I first met Annie Rivecchio. I had been a spectator of the sport of BBing since taking a job in a gym back in Michigan at age 16. I admired the physiques and attended a few local contests to support competing gym members. I wanted to eventually compete, and I knew this from the start.

I train 5-6 days per week. My training does not vary too much between "off season" and Precontest. I always train hard and smart. Actually, it gets more intense as i approach the precontest phase since i am stronger and recovering faster at this point. I'm also eating more during my "diet".
