Background

Started riding in 1999 at the age of 13. Raced almost every weekend, except while injured, until 2006. Finished in the Top 10 of the AMA District 14 point standings from 2003-2006 in 125 and 250 B classes, and attended Lorretta Lynn's regionals each year. Retired for awhile to finish college and start my career as an engineer in the automotive industry. Started riding again in 2010 and couldn't be having any more fun.

I had planned on buying a brand new bike for the 2015 season, but I've recently built a house and gotten engaged. Due to financial constraints during this busy time in my life, I have decided to purchase an older bike (2008 Kawasaki KX450) and compete in the Non-Current class. My primary goal in 2015 is to compete for the AMA/District 14 Non-Current state championship and ride as much as I can. I turn 30 in 2016, and will buy a new bike at that time to compete in the 30+ class. Can't wait to start the season..

Highlights

Finished ranked in the Top 5 of Michigan point standings in 2005 and 2006. Numerous victories in 125 Jr and 125 and 250 B classes throughout the years. Have raced in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Florida and Minnesota in regional and national events.

Goals

Finish in the top 5 in the Michigan 25+ class point standings, Qualify for Loretta Lynn's.
