I started my fitness journey in the 70’s playing organized sports. In the 80’s, as a teen, I found a love for weight training. I eventually made it my career to teach, motivate and inspire others. I have had my own personal training business for the last 8yrs. I am currently an actor in movies, TV shows, and commercials and I am also a fitness model. I recently relocated to LA to further my acting/modeling career.
My path to a vegan diet came from years of meditation, so the transition was easy. I finally realized that all deserve the right to a non-suffering existence on this planet. Once it happened, I never looked back. My passion and mission is to continue to teach wellness and spread the message of love/compassion through my clean Vegan lifestyle.
Pro Natural Physique
After competing in my first full season of bodybuilding I’m happy to announce it am now a professional VEGAN pro bodybuilder in a non vegan sport and I can further my cause to change this world to a more compassionate world through a vegan and cruelty free lifestyle. Without CLEAN MACHINE and Geoff Palmer and crew I would’ve never achieved these goals!
I am proud to be a Team Clean Machine Athlete, and I am a Certified Professional Trainer, TRX instructor and group class instructor. My debut competition will be at the Naturally Fit Super Show in Austin, TX in June 2015 and will be competing in the Physique category.
I also volunteer with:
– Challenge Day
– Big Brothers/Big Sisters school program
– Salvation Army summer fitness program
