Background

I began riding street bikes in 2005 and quickly fell in love with the buzz generated from riding a high performance motorcycle at a spirited pace. I never wanted that "buzz" feeling to go away and it created a determination deep inside of me to learn as much as I could about riding at a high performance level while continually improving my overall abilities as a rider. I have also found that riding street bikes has enabled me to recognize the importance of discipline in the quest for personal accomplishment. Riding has helped me add discipline into my own life in many different ways.

Highlights

One highlight that stands out to me most with regards to my riding over the course of the last several years was my ability to continue riding after suffering a nearly fatal accident on Ortega Highway in 2008. I did not let this accident define my experience with motorcycle riding and I was determined to make sure that I continued to push myself & improve my own abilities by riding close to the limit on a regular basis.

Goals

My goal during the upcoming 2014 racing season will be to attend at a minimum (6) track day events and also to obtain my racing license from a reputable racing school
