Factoids: I’m an IFBB pro figure competitor and an ISSA-certified trainer, as well as certified in CPR. I don’t have any children but do have two Yorkshire terriers. My baby girl’s name is Popcorn, and my baby boy’s name is Bear or Boo Boo—men prefer the name Bear while women tend to prefer Boo Boo.
Plans: I hope to make it to the 2010 Figure Olympia. My first pro show this year will probably be the Europa in Orlando, and I’ll definitely be competing at the California Pro. I plan on having a Vargas Bikini launch party this year in Las Vegas during March or April, and information will be posted on both of my Web sites. I also plan to get back into the recording studio sometime this year, as I’m a singer too.
