Although I have a rigorous schedule at work, my employer has been very reasonable and supportive, allowing me "personal time off" to pursue my bodybuilding/fitness-modeling career. In addition to working full-time, I spend approximately 20 hours per week training for bodybuilding competitions. I recently won Mike Katz' 14th Annual Connecticut and Northern States Natural Bodybuilding Competition. I took 1st place in the Connecticut and Northern States Divisions (middleweight class), and the show's overall winner. Although I have only been competing for 2 years, I have excelled fairly quickly with the help of Mike Katz and Dr. Mike Dusa. I am currently training for Team Universe (August 6th) and MuscleMania New York (August 20th).
Current Goals and Aspirations
Notwithstanding the commitment to my career as an attorney, I have a real passion for natural bodybuilding and fitness. In addition to competing in natural bodybuilding competitions, I would like to be a positive role model for others and an advocate for natural bodybuilding. Despite the negative press surrounding bodybuilding, I eventually want to establish a strong and meaningful relationship with an organization and other natural bodybuilders to promote fitness.
In addition, I would like to become the face and image for a well-known supplement company in an effort to encourage fitness and the healthy life style. As an attorney and an amateur natural bodybuilder, I can wear different "hats" and thus, capable of communicating to the every day gym rat and the working professional. Given my background and well-proportioned physique, I could be a very valuable asset for the "perfect" supplement company.
