Background

I started working at a bike shop when I was 19 years old. That's when I started riding motorcycles. I started out riding and racing motocross, but it has always been my dream to road race. I got married to the love of my life in 2015, and my wife is a HUGE part of my racing. I honestly wouldn't be where I am today without her!

I first started riding on the track in 2012, when I did my first track day. I kept riding as many track days as I could throughout 2012. In 2013, I ran my first race, and I've been hooked ever since. I raced a full season in 2014 as a novice, and ended up finishing in the top 3 in the southeast region of all 5 classes that I raced in. 2015 marked my first season as an expert. I loved every minute of it, and I learned a great deal! I ended 2015 with a regional championship in B Superbike, and in the top 3 for the southeast in the other 2 classes I raced. I even placed 3rd in the 750 Superbike National class! This year, 2016, I'm having a blast. I haven't been racing as much as I would like to this year due to financial reasons, but I plan to race a full season in 2017; all the southeastern WERA rounds, some National rounds, and hopefully some CCS races as well.

In addition to all the racing, I am also an instructor for Sportbike Track Time. I greatly enjoy helping other people pursue their passion in life!
