Background

Started in karts at the age of 7 accumulating multiple victories and podiums throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania. Made the transition to cars in 2011 in the highly competitive Spec Miata class of SCCA racing. Set the pole in first ever qualifying session and finished the weekend with 1 victory and two podium finishes. Tested three F2000 cars and a Star Mazda with John Walko Racing setting one of the best times ever in the Star Mazda around Beaverun.

Won the 2013 Mid Ohio Vintage GP in the highly competitive Sports 2000 category and qualified in the Top 5 in both pro F2000 races I competed in, setting one fastest lap.

Highlights

One of the most important moments in my career thus far would have to be an extremely successful testwith John Walko Racing in one of his Star Mazda cars where I came pretty close to the track record on old tires.

This test really started a great relationship between John and myself leading to some great opportunities including sweeping the 2012 Mid Ohio Vintage GP in the Historic Sports 2000 class and making my professional debut in July of 2012 with the team in the F2000 Championship Series.

In 2013 John and I continued our strong relationship by winning the 2013 Mid Ohio Vintage GP overall, scoring two SCCA Majors podiums in Formula Continental, two top 5 Pro F2000 qualifying and finishing efforts with one fastest race lap along the way.

2014 brought more excitement as I tested a Cooper Tires Prototype Lites car with Bar1 Motorsports at Sebring International Raceway and two tests with ArmsUp Motorsports in USF2000 machinery.

Goals

My goal leading into every season is to have fun, first and foremost. It really helps keep things in perspective and it keeps pressure off myself. I'd like to contest a partial schedule of the F2000 Championship Series, continue to do more vintage racing, test a Porsche GT3 Cup car and continue with Spec Miata as well. I guess you could say I'd like to be as busy as possible next year.
