"I was born in Beirut, Lebanon, and spent my adolescent years in the military, fighting in the civil war. During those years, one of my outlets was working out. I started getting interested in bodybuilding and received lots of encouragement from my gym owner. At age 15, I entered my first competition in Beirut, weighing 148 Lbs. won the overall and became the youngest Mr. Mount Lebanon. A couple of years later I immigrated to the United States to join my mother & brothers, and after moving around for almost a year I settled down in Rochester, NY. I resumed my weight lifting and bodybuilding and entered my first US contest at age 19, and won Mr. lake Ontario in 1991 a year after I entered two shows the Rochester and the Gold clasic and won my class in both , weighing 152 lbs. In 1995, I won Mr. Rochester overall, weighing 164 lbs. In August 1997, I got shot three times in a robbery attempt, in downtown Rochester. Two shots in my back and one in my stomach, I bled profusely and had major internal injuries, which brought me near death 7 times. I was rushed to surgery and had my kidney and bladder fixed, my lower spine fixed and half of my bowels removed. I ended up having my small intestine brought out to a pouch right above my right groin: an ileostomy. I spent 5 weeks recovering in the intensive care unit; my weight went down from 200 to 130 lbs. I got discharged home 4 months later and what an ordeal: I lost all my muscles, could not walk and had an ileostomy bag full of stools to care for. I pulled all my strength and stamina and decided to go back to the gym. Slowly and painfully I was able to regain some strength and muscles, and built my weight back to 180 lbs. In January 1998, I had surgery to reconnect my bowels and to get rid of the ileostomy. It took me 2 months to recover from that, but what a relief. All that was left from my ordeal externally is a long scar extending from underneath my sternum to below my belly button, a small side scar above my right groin and an imperfect 6 packs. From the inside, a short bowel with an impaired digestion and absorption of food. All of that did not defer me from continuing my quest to become a professional bodybuilding.

Six months after my last surgery, I entered the NY state bodybuilding championship, weighing 169 lbs, and took the overall. Six weeks later, I competed at the 1999 Junior Nationals and took second in the middleweight class. I rested for a year and packed some muscles then entered the 2000 NPC Nationals and won my middle class, weighing 176 lbs and received my PRO card. I again took a year off to prepare for my PRO debut, and packed 225 lbs before I started my contest preparation. I competed at the 2002 Southwest Pro, weighing 204 lbs on stage, and placed third which qualified me for the Olympia. It was a dream coming true, long awaited and filled with pain, hard work and extreme determination. I want to thank you personally for visiting my site . Hope you enjoy it and keep on coming back for some more news and updates. Your friend in iron."
