He moved to the NPC level the very next year and finished first during the NPC Worldwide Amateur Olympia Italy competitions, earning his IFBB Pro Card and being able to compete against some of the best bodybuilders in the world.

Currey became a Classic Physique competitor at the IFBB level, making his debut in 2019 with a seventh place finish at the Kuwait Pro, not bad for his first time on the pro stage. He also made an appearance on some of the biggest stages in the sport, such as the Tampa and Pittsburgh Pro competitions. In 2022, Currey won gold at the New York Pro and punched his ticket to his first Olympia competition.
