Previous Sporting Achievements:
Throughout my life, I’ve always been involved in being active, and participating
in different sports for fitness purposes like soccer, swimming, cycling & more
recently weight training.
2012, was my first year as a Male Fitness Model, competing here in Australia, firstly
at the Asia Pacific Championships in Queensland on my 45th birthday and then at
the ANB/Oxygen titles in Sydney.
My first competition, I placed 5th in the top 5 male fitness models and i recently retuned
from Vegas, where I placed 3rd in the Fitness America Male Fitness Model Classic
Obstacles you have Overcome:
Life is full of opportunities everywhere you look, some are more apparent than
others. Rather than say obstacles, i prefer to use the word challenge, because
these are what drive us to become the people that we are today. The biggest challenge
for me was time and trying to balance an ordinary lifestyle, chores, whilst working a 50 hr week, and also trying to fit in 5-6 days a week at the gym, plus 70km of cardio, together with the necessary time for the preparation of the meals that needed to be consumed whilst getting adequate sleep every night for growth.
Hobbies and Interests:
Up until two years ago i was involved as a committee member with the NSW Corvettes Unlimited car club, being a proud owner of a original fully restored red 69 corvette convertible... my dream car. Since then i have bought and sold various collectable cars, recently a 4wdrive HSV Coupe and some not, and dabbled with two wheels and big motorbikes.
Having studied architecture and environment, I’m always interested in buildings
and mega structures, travelling to other countries and looking at famous buildings and newer designs and churches and cathedrals...
Future Goals and Aspirations
I am very much interested in promoting healthy lifestyle, whether bodybuilding or fitness modelling for older persons thinking of giving it a go.
I would like to be considered a role model at 45 and leader in my chosen category and a positive example for all persons, who like myself who work a full time job, lead an active lifestyle & and think that they cannot achieve that goal they just dream about.
At the moment, im considering competing for the next few years, and aiming my sights now at the 2013 Asia Pacific Championships and then the Fitness America games.
