When and where did your journey into the world of health and fitness begin and who or what inspired you to get into weight training? I used to watch my father weight train when I was young so that was my first inspiration, I lifted my first weight when I was 6 years old to try and be like him and always dreamt of becoming a muscle man. At the age of 18 while involved in Rugby League I decided to study genetics to work out the best way to structurally build my body to become the best athlete I could.
Congratulations on your victory at the 2016 Natural Bodz Asia Pacific Championships where you took out first place in the Muscle Model Category. I believe this was your first competition, how did it feel to achieve such success in your first ever stage appearance? It was a great feeling at the age of 41 to enter and win my first comp. It was amazing to know that all my hard work had paid off. I felt really proud but also humbled to beat the other great competitors.
Are you involved in any other sports or have previously had success in any other sporting endeavors. I have had success in the Martial Arts world, achieving 2nd Dan Black Belt for the NZ Karate Academy. I also played in a Premier Rugby League team in my younger days.
Do you believe involvement in these sports has helped forge the physique you have today? Yes, I believe it was the building blocks to the physical form I have today.
