I am a graduate of the Georgian College Civil Engineering Program, who turned to Physique Engineering. After spending half a decade learning the ins and outs of nutrition, how to optimize movement to enhance muscle building AND quality of life, and coaching myself to multiple first place victories (and a Pro Card win), I set my sights on helping others achieve the bodies - and lives - of their dreams.

I adapt YOUR specific training and nutritional needs to YOUR situation and lifestyle to achieve success, taking into account YOUR age and experience(check out this amazing couple's achievement, for example - they're almost 50!! ). By optimizing WHAT you eat, WHEN, and HOW you train, while keeping YOUR preferences (and goals) at the top of my priorities, success is guaranteed - and RESULTS ARE TYPICAL!

Mens Open Bodybuilding
In the earlier stages of my career, I embarked on my first "contest prep'. It lasted 10 grueling weeks and lead me to my first 1st place victory.
I had picked a very large, popular show as my first event. I am happy to say took the overall title and earned a spot as a UFE Pro bodybuilder.
