Why you became a Vegan: I became vegan because of Gary Yourofsky. June 2011, I listened to his speech at Broward College and he totally open my eyes. I always had a misconception on how animals were being treated and raised for human consumption. I also had a big misconception on animal nutrition. From that day on I decided to become vegan. It wasn’t easy at first, I stopped eating all land animal products and for 2 years I was 80% Vegan and 20% Pescatarian. Now I’ve been Vegan for a year and it feels great to not be involve with any type of animal killing or cruelty and being on a plant base diet.

History Competing:
2013- ANBF “First Competition” 1st Overall Novice, 2nd Men’s Open
2013- NPC 1st Overall Open Novice, 2nd Men’s Open Middle Weight
2013- DFAC 3rd Men’s Open Heavy Weight
2013 – 5th NGA Men’s Middle Weight
2013 – 1st in Men’s open middle weight class at NPC Florida Gold Cup Classic

What drives you to compete: Every time I train or step on that stage, I know I’m not doing it just for me. I’m trying to send a message to the audience that you can be in shape and healthy only on a plant base diet without harming, enslaving, or murdering any type of life form on this planet. So when I’m training, I’m training at 110%. I never give up or take a break because I know I have disadvantages in this sport. Being 100% natural, I have to train even harder to beat other competitors that are not. I don’t mind being the underdog in this sport or being different in a world that tells you to be someone else. Every time I place in a competition I feel confident and proud that my accomplishments were all on my own without contributing in any type of cruelty of another life form. Hopefully my message will spread in this sport and I can make a huge impact in the hearts of everyone.

What do you see as the biggest advantages of being a vegan athlete: Gains and health benefits. The gains that I achieve being vegan are remarkable. My strength, endurance, and speed has greatly risen and continues too as a vegan athlete. Also meeting other vegans and vegan athletes everyone is so nice and compassionate about everything they do.
