When did you start Photography?
I bought a Sony A5000 in October 2015 but didn’t take anything more than a handful of snaps on auto until extremely basic food photography in May of 2017 which is also around the time I started taking more than a shot every two months. So I’d say 2017 but for the sake of being anal it would be the end of 2015.
When did you start lifting?
I walked into a gym for the first time on the final days of December before 2016. I started off with a handful of arm exercises like dumbbell curls and dumbbell flyes because I had no idea what to do or even how to do basic things, nor any idea how to use any of the machines. I was also extremely self conscious. I began a very loose version of Arnolds Golden Six routine 3 months later (March, 2016) and added Deadlifts another 8 or 9 months later, so somewhere around November of 2016. I started Clean and Jerk in September 2017.
When did you start cooking?
Other than burgers and heating up processed foods, it was probably around the age of 17 or 18 I cooked things that could be considered home cooked meals.
When did you start coding?
I tried HTML and making websites when I was 13 or 14, the first website I remember making was called the Red Alert Construction Yard and was specifically about the video game Command and Conquer: Red Alert. It was a hub of useful information, screenshots and some weird stuff I tried making and I remember gaming hubs didn’t really exist at that point but of course later they became huge.
When did you become diabetic?
I was hospitalised after falling into a coma and diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic in June of 2001. I woke up 2 weeks later and was discharged 2 days later. I was showing symptoms for approximately 2 months prior.
When did you begin a low carb diet?
I ate very high carb (approximately 150g+ per day) from ages 20-26 but had eaten fairly healthily and probably somewhere around <100g carbs/day before then. I slowly began experimenting but didn't move back under 100g/day until 2016, a few months after I joined the gym. I tried keto for the first time in late 2016 and again briefly in 2017.
