Background

Grew up with a great mindset of wanting to race but due to slightly protective parents it wasn't going to be possible at a younger age. Completed my first track day the summer of 2009 at the young age of 22 and realized my dreams were still worth chasing. i continued riding street for another season until convert my 2009 R6 to a track only ride and completing my 2nd track day October of 2010. The following February i decided to start racing with WERA and haven't stopped since. My will to get on a bike for so many years has brought me to the level i am know, currently in the top 10 in both national and regional level 600 superstock and superbike classes. I plan finishing top 5 by the end of the year.

Highlights

Finished my 2011 season with no crashes and great progression every time i got out on the track. My 2012 season has started out well by still making great progression and finishing close to the top every race. My first solo 16 middleweight class was at Barber Motorsports Park where i was gridded 22nd in the 2nd wave and came out with an 8th. I also had my first podium in my first rain race the same weekend.

Goals

Undecided as of now to move up into expert classes or stay another year novice for i do not have anywhere close to the amount of seat time as my competition does.
