A gym fanatic, you became nationally qualified in bodybuilding at the age of 18 and that’s what kicked off your career in fitness modelling. How did you shift towards fitness from music?
Music activates the mind. With an activate mind, the body follows. Music enables movements, patterns, counts, that can have your body moving once you are in tuned with the song. I guess people call it dancing? Nevertheless, music can be a very personal hobby and so is fitness. You plug in your headphones and hit the gym leaving everything behind but your soul. Fitness you need to be able to have a strong mind, and to do music you need to have a strong body and core to perform for hours.
Music and Fitness are the only things that you can perfect and have ultimate control over. It takes the same discipline, focus, passion, time, and consistency to get better. So It goes hand on hand, except one is with the body and the other is with the mind. So it was an easy transition to go from one to the other.

It has not been easy! I am in the last 4 weeks of a 22 week preparation. My weakness is stage presence and posing, so a lot of my focus has been in perfecting that area. I pretty much eat three meals a day with a snack or two. I have been traveling a lot as well so it has been quite the challenge. I carry my meals everywhere I go and track all the macronutrients that I eat outside of it.
