I started Olympic weightlifting when I was 13 years old, competing and practicing this sport for 7 years.  During those years I competed in WCH National Championships as a Junior and Senior.  I also represented Team Canada at 2 World Junior Championship, coached by Serge Chretien.

I switched to Strongman when I was 20 years old and I turned Pro in 2022.  That summer, I became Québec's strongest man and Canada's Strongest Man in 2023.  I'm coached by Jean-Francois Caron.

What is your favourite lifting memory?
Winning Canada's Strongest Man in 2023.

What is one piece of advice you have for up and coming athletes getting into strength training or strength sport?
To believe in yourself and not to worry about what other people are thinking.  Even if you don't think you are genetically gifted, do what you like, give it all you have and be the hardest worker in the room.  That's how I became Canada's Strongest Man smallest champion ever.
