Brian entered his first competition (Aloha Muscle) in 2017 after his wife Marisela, also a pro bodybuilder and Monethos athlete, encouraged him to take his physique to the stage. He won overall in men’s physique and continued training until his second victory which earned him his IFBB Pro card in the 2018 NPC Jr. Nationals. He has done two Pro shows since. At 29 years old, Brian has his sights set to make it to the top of competitive bodybuilding.
Brian and Marisela hope to one day own a hardcore bodybuilding gym, where, according to Brian, “you can go and work out with your shirt off and no one complains.” His personal motto #NLTR, which stands for Nothing Like the Rest, captures his drive to distinguish himself from his competition and expresses his competitive confidence both in and out of the gym.
He served 8 years in the US Army in human resources and airborne operations, returning a decorated veteran. He’s spent 3 years coaching teen basketball. His other hobbies and pastimes include playing an occasional game of basketball, riding his Harley around, smoking a nice cigar, spending time with his wife and 4 kids, and laying back for a good Memphis-style barbecue.
