Background

My first memory of motorcycles was being deathly afraid at the sound of my dad's cruiser being fired up in the garage around age 3. That all changed in high school - after hearing some friends talk about how much fun they had on dirt bikes, I found a Yamaha TW200 to learn on and was hooked. Over 10 years later, I've owned dirt bikes, cruisers, supersports, sport tourers, and motards, but these days can be found on a VFR800A or an RSP Racing SV650S. I've ridden at many tracks around the country, including Talladega, Barber, VIR, NJMP, Monticello, Thompson, NCBIKE, and NHMS.

Highlights

I started doing trackdays in 2008, began control riding in 2009, was promoted to instructor in 2011, and also began racing in 2011. After only three rounds in LRRS's Novice class (where I podiumed in every race), I advanced to the Amateur ranks. I finished the 2011 season with a couple Amateur podiums and a few less seconds on my laptimes. During the final LRRS round, I was invited to join RSP Racing - the largest and most prominent team at Loudon. I finished 2012 as the Thunderbike champion. My 2013 season was cut short due to an injury, but 2014 saw breaking into the "teens," my highest Expert finish, and exposure at two new tracks (Thompson and NCCAR).

Goals

Continue to improve my racecraft, represent my team and my sponsors well, drop three seconds/lap average, and be advanced to the Expert class.
