Background

I grew up loving motorcycles and watching racing, but I never had the opportunity to own a motorcycle until I was an adult. After watching the Suzuka 8Hr in 1998, I purchased my first motorcycle. After riding for a few years, I attended my first trackday with friends in 2008, and after my third trackday, decided to try my hand at racing. I received my WERA novice license in 2009, and have been racing ever since. I enjoy being at the track, and the challenge of learning the different race tracks and competing against others has become a passion. Sometimes a race weekend doesn't go according to plan, but when you have that epiphany on the track where everything comes together and you see improvement the feeling of satisfaction is indescribable.

Highlights

In a short period of time, I have improved my race craft. I've managed to be very consistent while improving my lap times 2-4 seconds at the tracks I've competed on each year since I started. I've finished 2nd in multiple class championships, and have many top 5 overall championship finishes in multiple classes.

All my results for this year are recorded on my Hookit profile, and my entire official racing career results can be found at:
