I have been involved with the ANB for more than 10 years as a competitor and more recently as a judge. I am proud of my competitive record and have achieved some great results over the years.
From the first time that I met Robert Powell and the rest of the ANB family in 2001 I felt as if this was my home. I cannot speak highly enough of the people involved with the ANB, from the Executive to the volunteers at the shows. Every person involved always makes you feel special as a competitor in a truly professional environment.
Competing over the years has given me much joy and on some occasions disappointment. But, every judging decision I have received in the ANB has been fair and justified. No matter which federation you may usually compete with, you can always be sure that you will be judged fairly and without fear of politics influencing a decision. The judging panel always consists of well credentialed officials with years of competitive experience.
The backstage experience at an ANB competition is always friendly and professional. I don’t know what it is about the ANB but it is the only federation that I have had this feeling with. I have met so many great friends through the ANB, both competitors and officials.
With a personal competition record of 33 bodybuilding shows across a number of federations, I have achieved all I wish to achieve on the stage. This sport has given me so much and has helped me grow on both a personal and professional level. For me, it is time to give back to the sport and the federation that has that has had the biggest influence on my life.
After recent discussions with Robert Powell and other ANB officials I am honoured to announce that my beautiful wife Rachael and I have been appointed as the promoters of the Queensland State Bodybuilding and FigureTitles.
With this comes great responsibility and high expectations. It is our goal to take the Queensland State Titles back to the heights we were seeing a few years ago. For a long time the ANB in Queensland has been without someone on the ground up here to get out in the streets and promote the show.
This year our goal is to achieve high competitor numbers and an auditorium packed with excited supporters and spectators. We want to encourage first timers and the up and comers of the sport to get up there and give it a go while also hoping to see some old faces back on stage. Support and advice will only be a phone call or email away. I am only too happy to help anyone along the road to competition day. I will also be conducting posing workshops leading up the Championships at no cost to help familiarise our new comers with the proceedings on the day. Experienced competitors are also welcome.
On the day you can expect a quality, friendly, fair and efficiently run competition, second to none. This will be achieved with a high level of drug testing, a very friendly and helpful environment, outstanding trophies and great sponsors all conducted in a fantastic venue.
As a competitor there is nothing better than being on stage in front of a packed auditorium. For this reason we will be making the entry fee for supporters and spectators very affordable.
Queensland has a tradition of producing many Australian Champions and for as many years as I can remember Queensland has always been the best performing state at the National Titles. So come and be part of the tradition.
