I've been in the sport since 2005 when a friend dragged me into powerlifting.

My biggest accomplishments are competing at the 2017 World Games and winning Master 1 Equipped Worlds in 2022. I train out of our personal gym, Unparalleled, in Moose Jaw, SK.  I am currently coaching myself, but I have worked with a few great coaches throughout my lifting career, including Jeff Butt as my first coach, Blaine Sumner, Mike Tuchscherer, and Bryce Krawczyk.

What is your favourite lifting memory?
Lifting at the World Games in 2017 was the best lifting experience.  A close second was competing at Nationals in 2020 against Erik Willis, where Erik, Bryce Krawczyk and myself all totalled over 1050kg, the three biggest totals ever in the CPU.

What is one piece of advice you have for up and coming athletes getting into strength training or strength sport?
Take your time, find a good coach you can trust, and trust them. Coach hopping won't get you better faster.

What is your favourite lift or event?

What is your favourite product and why?
13mm Belt
It's simply the best belt on the market, from leather quality to ease of adjustability.

What 3 other items are your go to and why?
Powerlifting Knee Sleeves
Flexible Medium Wrist Wraps
Elbow Sleeves
The powerlifting knee sleeves feel great, great compression throughout the whole range of motion. Medium flexible wraps are all you really need for even the heaviest of lifts.  The elbow sleeves are my go to for whenever my elbows get cranky.

What colourway is your favourite and why?
I really like the colourway as dark green is a go to colour in my day to day life.

Why do you believe SBD is the gear all athletes should use?
SBD has the highest quality gear available, made in the UK.

Why do you believe in working with SBD Canada as a Sponsored Athlete?Because of all that they're doing within the sport.
