I have always had a keen interest in sport, and developed an interest in bodybuilding in high school. I liked the way the body could be designed moulded through hard work and commitment. At a young age, I realized the importance of nutrition. Training and nutrition go hand in hand and both require 100% commitment.

I am a firm believer in supplementing your diet with quality supplements. I am fortunate to have been able to work in the fitness industry since April 2010, where I can practice my passion, and pass on knowledge I have attained in the nutrition space.

I believe that as a competitor, your biggest competition is not the athlete next to you , but the person staring back in the mirror. I constantly strive to improve on what I bring to stage.

My competitive history thus far:

– IFBBEP Provincials Light Heavy & overall winner.

– IFBB SA’s 2010 6th
2011 4th
2012 3rd
2013 6th

IFBBEP provincials 2016 90-100kg 2nd, IFBB SA’s 2016 1st Middle heavy weight.

The highlight of my bodybuilding career will be representing South Africa at the IFBB World Championships in Spain 2016
