People like Frank Zane, Franco Colombo, Bob Paris (in my opinion one of the most aesthetic physiques) I admire Steve Cook and Matt Ogus as well. Matt's physique is crazy, and he is a natural bodybuilder like I am, so I have nothing but respect for his hard work and dedication."

Of all the things you have accomplished, during your 'fitness life' - what are you proud of the most?

"My self discipline, hard work ethic and of course all the results I have made during the years. You don't get that by chance. It takes hard work, sacrifice and dedication."
