I grew up around racing with my dad, uncles, and aunt who all raced cars. Little did I know that I was growing up in the heart of dirt track country in Michigan. It wasn’t until I was 17 when I bought my first bike right out of high school. Even though I always had an eye for motorcycles I wasn’t allowed to own one. I’ve been a part of the motorcycle community ever since. A friend got me into drag racing motorcycles and since then if it had 2 wheels I was in. Today I am the president of the Nashville Ton Up Club in which we are dedicated to educating the public and preservation of vintage British motorcycles.
I moved to Nashville, TN from Michigan in 2004 to finish college and worked in the music and television industry for 10 years. The last 8 years I have focused on building and growing my own construction company.
I started road racing with AHRMA in 2016 after attending the Barber Vintage Fest and meeting several racers that live in and around Nashville.
After a nasty get off in 2017 I tried my hand at dirt track and, as they say, the rest is history. I came onboard the dirt track program earlier this year as the technical director after being asked to assist in revitalizing the program. I’m excited and honored to now take the reins and rebuild the AHRMA dirt track program with the support of Off-Road Director Tony Paul and AHRMA’s Chairman of the Board, Arthur Kowitz.
