Maurice has always had an infatuation with bodybuilding since he was a kid and always dreamed of becoming a bodybuilder.

Maurice went on to become an aircraft technician at Northrop Grumman.

At Northrop, they had a gym and that’s when Maurice started to train.

About a year into training Maurice decided to get a membership at the famous Golds gym.

The reason for moving over to Golds was to train in a very motivating environment.

Maurice would always see photo shoots of some of the most popular bodybuilders at Golds gym and this impressed Maurice so much that it gave him the desire to train hard and prepare for his first show.

Maurice decided to do his fist show at Muscle Beach on July 4th 2011 in the light heavyweight Open and Novice class.

Maurice went on to place 1st in both classes.

Since then, Maurice did not look back and has been competing in NPC local shows.

Positive results enabled Maurice to be nationally qualified to get a pro card so he hooked up with trainer and mentor Chris Cormier.

Maurice has been working with Cormier since they met.

The work with Cormier has improved Maurice’s physique drastically and he believes that winning a IFBB Pro card is not a impossible mission with Chris by his side.
