He learned to talk, walk and dance like MJ.As a teenager, he rocked MJ attire and grew out his hair. M.J. A journalist noticed him and hired him to play as a double.It was during Michaels wedding on Elvis Presley’s daughter.
It was after this that he became a full-time career double. From then onwards he has trained to perfection. He trains 4 hours a day daily and seeks to get the details to the minutest of deeds.
