I first got involved in bodybuilding at only 12 years of age. Training hard throughout my teens I entered my first contest at 17 - which I won. Later that year in 1992, I went on to take my first British title as a natural bodybuilder, the EFBB junior under 18 Mr Britain. Then in '94, age 19 I captured the EFBB British under 21 title, and was selected to compete in the IFBB world championships in Izmir, Turkey. After this success as a junior, I took time off to concentrate on my studies and future career.

Seven years later, in 2001, I came back to the stage and entered the BNBF open, winning the middleweights but losing out on the overall. In 2002 I grabbed second, and in 2003 after 3 attempts I finally took the class and British overall, qualifying me as a professional natural bodybuilder. In my debut pro show that same year (the WNBF pro worlds) I placed 2nd, a feat that I repeated in 2004. Determined to give it one more shot, I took a year out in 2005 to improve and returned the following season to finally capture the WNBF Overall Pro world title, considered by many to be the pinnacle of the natural sport. In 2007 I snatched 2nd again, giving me a total of 4 top-two finishes in 5 years at world championship level.

After realising an ambition of becoming world champion, I'm now taking a break from competition. Since 2003 I have worked as a physique consultant advising individuals on their training and diet, and helping them to achieve their fitness goals.
