The reason I started to do powerlifting/strongman events is…
I absolutely love weightlifting. Everyone has something they are good at. Some can run fast. Some can jump high. Some can throw a ball. I was born to do this.
The person I most wanted to be when I started was…
Me. I just want to be the best I can be. When I was a kid, I didn’t dream of being someone else. I never dreamed of being Spider-Man or the Hulk. I dreamed of me being a superhero, and it was actually me with super-strength.
The person I owe the most to is…
Alex Drolc, a legendary powerlifter in his own right, brought me in. He opened my eyes as to how a person trains for strength. He took me under wing. He worked out at my gym, and I seen in the papers that he won the Canadian Powerlifting Championship. I approached him, and told him I wanted to start competitively lifting. It’s been crazy ever since. Also, Louis Szpeflicki for helping me on the other side of things.

Four things people should know about me is…

  • When I was a kid, I used to dream of being a superhero when I grew up and using my super-strength to help people.
  • When I got older, I let my dreams go. I didn’t believe in myself. I doubted myself and had an intense fear of failure. It ran my life for years.
  • I now chase my dreams and don’t wait for anyone else to tell me it’s possible for me to achieve them.
  • I still feel fear of failure every time I step out there. Now, I master my fear.

My future holds…
