INTERESTING FACT OR EXPERIENCE THAT HELPED SHAPE LIFE: "How I found the sport of arm-wrestling is kind of cool. The series Game of Arms came out on AMC and sparked a huge interest. Not to long after by chance I found an arm-wrestling table at a yard sale. I brought it with me to a 4 day concert where I must of arm wrestled a 100 people and never lost. When I got home my arms were in murderous pain for a couple months, but once the pain subsided I was hungry for more. I found Eric Wolfe on the internet, the head of the local arm-wrestling club in my area and now my #1 training partner. From there the rest just fell into place."

Arm-wrestling and having the opportunity to work on my Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering are a couple.
