I was diminished to the point I was like a newborn baby. I had to re-learn how to eat, walk and talk. I was on IV for almost four weeks. When I was given food for the first time, my mother, my girlfriend (Kiki), and the nurse were all watching closely. I loaded the fork with food and tried to put the fork through the side of my cheek. I did this three times and was very disturbing. The nurse took the fork and food away from me and said she would help me. When she forwarded the fork to my mouth, I grabbed her hand like I do when I arm wrestle someone.
What does this mean? I could arm wrestle before I could eat !!!
A Summarized History
My journey has been incredible – Here are a few of my wins in life!
I was near death when I was born; my blood was too thick and I was in an incubation chamber for over 3 months.
I now live in North Vancouver — in my opinion, the best place in Canada — I have had an amazing life after my acquired brain injury in 2018.
Arm Wrestling Saved My Life
I chose arm-wrestling as the sport of choice because it is masculine, rewarding, strategic, challenging and keeps me lean and in shape.
In 2018 – I lost 47 lbs in 3.25 months, then won the Canadian arm wrestling competition in Montreal just after losing this weight.
I am a 9-time Canadian National Arm Wrestling Champion and 1-time North American Champion.
In 2015 I hosted and organized the 2015 Canadian Arm Wrestling Nationals Competition and in 2024, I am looking to host and organize the 2024 Canadian championships in the BC lower mainland.
Last year, I made an instructional arm wrestling website called Arm Wrestling Champions with a primary goal to teach as many people as I can how to be an arm wrestling champion.
Miracle survivor of 3 major accidents
In 1997 was in a head-on collision north of Prince Geeorge, BC. I had lung damage, a head injury, and a broken right kneecap.
In 2004, a friend of mine and I hit a manure spreader. I was a passenger in in this accident that happened in Mission, B.C.. I suffered a broken right hip & left wrist and lacerated my face, which also had broken bones.
In 2018, I was hit by a car while walking across Knight St & 53rd in Vancounver, BC – In this accident I suffered an ABI (aquired brain injury).
In recovery, I effectively matured 15 years in a four-year span.
The Secret Of My Success
I get knocked down, but I get back up and don’t stay down – I do what I have to move ahead. I work hard every day to be better mentally, physically and financially!
What has grown out of tragedy has been a blossoming new life with my friends and family.
I treat people as I would want to be treated and I am truly grateful for what I have!
