    Quite a transformation, would you say?

    "My health comes first. Last year I missed the @mrolympiallc due to medical reasons, I sat in the audience and was so let down I wasn’t up there to bring my best. As soon as I got back to Australia I started prep for the 2020 arnoldsports only to realise my crainiotomy didn’t heal correctly so it needed to be redone.

    November hits and I’m in the best position for prep but health comes first so I go in for another crainiotomy which was successful, I get the all clear from my neurosurgeon to train so I do dohertysgymdandenong the next part rocked my world. I remember paramedics telling me I had a post operation seizure in the gym so I’m on my way to the hospital. I’m prescribed dexamethasone, seizure medication, pain killers, antibiotics etc. Within weeks side effects from these medications transformed my body into the first photo taken January 1st 2020...I’m not proud and didn’t want to post it but what’s more important is the people this will inspire and that lives more in alignment with who I am. After weekly appointments with my neuro team I’m given the all clear to compete which brings me to my second photo which was 28 days later and 45 pounds lighter, I suffered and struggled my way there, am I better...no....will sitting at home make me better...no...will pulling out of the Arnold’s change anything for the better...no....can I inspire my son and many others along the way by not quitting....yes, so no matter the pain I was all in. With coming off some of the medications and results coming faster I teamed up with Patrick Tuor as team work makes the dream work which brings me to my third photo taken 28 days later, I know the best is to come and better days are ahead. I leave for Ohio on Monday and as my first year being sponsored by @blackskullusa it would have been very easy for them to drop me as an athlete, instead they have stood with me through this, just like dohertysgym have since 2015 and now @iron_tanks

    With having my son William last year I’m more obligated to be a better version of myself and I want the thank everyone that has given me strength, encouragement or distraction from the pain specifically my wife, family and friends."
