Background

I started riding street bikes in 2007, and as I got more into the sport, I realized that track riding was what I wanted to do to progress my skills to the next level. In 2011 I decided to sell my street bike and purchase my first race bike. In May of 2011, without even participating in a track day, I was at the track getting my race license. From there, everything progressed. In 2013, I was asked to be an instructor for the Zalusky Advanced Riding school.

Highlights

- Racing with friends
- Taking 2nd in the ZARS GP3/4 shootout in September of 2013
- Being an instructor
- Learning to understand bike feedback

Goals

My goals for next year (I'm counting the 2014 race season) are to win my first CRA race, and to continue to provide exceptional service as a track day instructor.
