I started racing BMX at age 6 when my friend brought me out to our local track in Napa, CA. My dad kept me in the sport initially to prepare me for a go at motocross, but I quickly realized BMX Racing was my passion. My rise through the ranks was a struggle due to my small stature, but it's made for quite the "David vs. Goliath" story line over the years.
With a nation-wide racing / speaking / mentoring tour on the horizon for 2015 through my newly co-founded BMX Coaching platform, Pedals2Medals.com, I look forward to becoming more multi-dimensional in pursuit of excellence.
