He went from being an independent trainer to co-owner of a 20,000 square foot facility, Facet Seven in the Heights. In the pursuit of understanding the effects of training and nutrition to the fullest, he entered the Fitness Texas 2011 Bodybuilding Tour getting 3rd place heavy weight. He also competes in endurance sports, recently completing the AlaskaMan Extreme Ironman in July 2017, and ultra distance marathons placing top 10 at the 2016 Bandera Texas 50k trail run.
