By now most of you know what got me into Armwrestling,but for the benefit of this post it was Armwrestling machines in amusement arcades in particular the " STRONGMAN" that started this all off,The rest is history and needs no introduction! To cut a long story short it was in 2012 that a chance encounter with the "STRONGMAN" armwrestling machine in Minehead changed my life forever and inspired me to take armwrestling seriously and it is remarkable to see where it has taken me on an incredible journey from complete beginner up to my present level as I have established my reputation as a dedicated puller willing to take on anything that comes my way!

My introduction to Armwrestling was in 2010. Me and my twin brother Paul whent to the Excel Centre London in May 2010 to see the "Giants Live" qualifications for the Worlds Strongest Man. After the show we were treated to the spectacle of Arm Wars, including Underwood, Bath, Barbosa, Bortolato and Tod. It was on this occasion that Vagna Bortolato broke Michael Tod's left arm. It was a strange experience speaking to Vagna after the match (translated by Marceo Barbosa, who speaks much better English than Vagna). I learned a few good lessons! Also I got to go on the practice table and get some coaching by Don Underwood, Dan Thomas, Keith Taylor and Arthur Dorohoff. I realised that unlike "Strongman" I could actually compete in this sport, and have been enjoying it ever since!

My good friend Geoff Collins introduced me to Julien Cini. My first arm wrestling comp was I think in 2009 (Preston panthers). Still training consistently and loving the sport!

Nick Hall and David Horne set me on the path...

Training with the Bullets, Scarsbrook and Macey was an interesting apprenticeship.
