INTERESTING FACT OR EXPERIENCE THAT HELPED SHAPE LIFE: "When my son was 6 months-old ,I found out he was blind. Due to this, I knew he would be limited to the physical activities or sports he could participate in. At the time I was around 220lbs. Arm-wrestling was a sport he could be very competitive in, so I started straining again so when he is ready to compete I will be in good enough shape to help him train."
UNIQUE FACT: "I get to train with the best team in the nation. I have people training me how to beat them and they are in my weight class. This is why Louisiana has the best team."

BIGGEST OBSTACLE FACED AND OVERCAME: "I have had multiple surgeries on my arm and shoulder. In order to keep competing I have had to train different ways than most. This forced me to modify equipment and workouts to still get gains without further injuring myself."
