Began racing in 1981 competing with California's American Federation of Motorcyclists.

1988 Competed in first USGP at Monterey and won top 10 overall honors with the AFM
1989 Competed in AMA road racing campaigning a 250 and 600. Competed in the 2nd USGP race
1989 Retired at end of season
After retiring from competitive racing after the 1989 season, I raised a son and daughter while working for the City & County of San Francisco as a building engineer.
In 2010, my Wife purchased as a gift to me a Yamaha R6 which I rode to and from work. I did not ride a motorcycle the entire time between 1989 and 2010.
After riding at Miller Motorsports park for Yamaha's customer appreciation event, I was convinced to come out of retirement and race in 2011. However, the R6 and I were involved in an accident when I was hit by a youth driving with no license or iinsurance while crossing an intersection.
This did not deter me but left me without a motorcycle to compete on. I eventually signed on with the Feel Like a Pro racing motorcycle rental program and competed in the AFM for 2011 aboard a Ninja 250. After the season was over, I was 5th overall.
Turning 50 years old in 2012, we have set our sights onAFM's 250 Production class, compete in the 600 class and if funding becomes available, compete in the AMA 600 Supersport class at select events in the West series.
In my return in 2011, I was very fortunate to get support from bayarearidersforum.com and GoPro, which allowed me to create videos after each race.
All my videos have typically averaged about 48 countries and we are looking to expand that number and sustained viewership.
I would like to thank barf, GoPro, Cycle Gear racing and Pirelli tires for coming onboard and hope you will also.
