I have had many benefits as well as many struggles and
challenges as a result of my career as a professional
armwrestler. Meeting celebrities, television
appearances and the feeling of winning world
championships might appear to be on the top of ones
benefit list, but they don't top mine anymore. My list
begins with a newly found appreciation of my good
fortune. This discovery has made a tremendous impact
on my life.
I took growing up in Weybridge for granted as I knew

Through my travels I also gained a tremendous
appreciation for the quality of life I have here. All
of my experiences around the country and around the
world as well as being with the hungry and sick
children in India and trying to imagine how their
mother feels, changed me in an unforgettable way.
Now each time I lift a barbell my mind focuses on what
I might learn next.
