In 2015, he won his first international medal at the Parapan American Games with a bronze in the 100m. He also raced in three events at the 2013 and 2015 IPC World Championships.

He was the Canadian weightlifting record holder at clean and jerk in 2006. At that time, he was ranked first Canadian overall. Earned a spot on the national team after two years of racing.
