“Back in 2009, I was diagnosed with Still’s Disease/ Early Onset Rheumatoid Arthritis. This was a devastating blow to my career that pretty much just started to take off. I started tattooing in 2006 and it was everything to me. I made a lot of sacrifices to succeed. After a few years of taking prednisone and methotrexate which left me all sorts of messed up, swollen and sick I swelled up to 225 and was fed up. I had spoken to Danny a few times about it back then and he always suggested a diet change and getting over to the gym. I ended up going Paleo for a full year and it worked incredibly well for me; so well that I was able to completely get off medication, leaving me 60 lbs lighter, but weak. I never followed through with the gym, I never made the time to really dedicate to it. It wasn’t until 2015 that I finally made my way into Soul to start training.
