I am 27 years old and I was born in Lima, Peru. My family and I briefly lived in Sao Paulo, Brazil before coming to Miami, FL where I grew up. I began racing on simulators at the age of 9. I took them very seriously and I competed at a very high level. Sim racing tought me a lot about driving, race craft, theory, and car setup. At 18 years old I got my first opportunity to validate my sim racing talent with a real race car. It was a test day in a Baby Grand stockcar at Hialeah Speedway. It was a successful day and the team owners were impressed with my speed specially for the fact that I had no experience. I then decided under the pressure from my parents to go to college. I studied Mechanical Engineering and graduated summa cum lauda from Florida International University in 2012. While in school I began kart racing at the end of 2008. I am currently a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley in the department of mechanical engineering. I hope to soon redirect my focus back to racing full time in 2014.

Since 2013 - Twice A Year
After karting competitively for for years I am moving up to formula cars. The first step is to complete the racing school programs which I have done. Next is to file for a SCCA racing license. So far I have felt extremely comfortable in formula cars and I look forward to the challenges ahead.
So far my highlight is a very successful Skip Barber 3-day racing school at Laguna Seca Raceway. My best lap time was a 1:43.80 which is a mid-pack time in the racing series. But this was my 14th lap total lap in the car. I have a lot of pace still in me and I felt very satisfied with my day because I was not pushing too hard.
My goals are as follows: I plan to test a Formula Enterprise car at Sonoma Raceway with Bulldog motorsports this summer. From the test I will make a decision about entering a SCCA race this year. I will also be focusing on securing financial support for a full season of racing in 2014. Most likely a mixed schedule of races in SCCA, and Formula Car Challenge.
