Background

Equipment: 2015 BMW S1000RR

I'm a software engineer with a passion for racing. I raced BMX and Motocross between the ages of 6 and 12, and then stopped due to financial reasons as well as an injury. Started riding again in my early 20s, but before that I also spent time doing car stuff, including autocross, karting, and a little bit of auto racing. It wasn't until recent years that I got into motorcycle track days and lately racing.

Highlights

I have a natural ability with speed and being competitive. I work hard on learning and analyzing off the track in order to improve my abilities on the track.

Late 2016 season was my debut in motorcycle races. I have completed 2 race weekends in 2016 so far and got Top 5 results in all the races, getting really close to the times of seasoned novice racers, as well as some experts, with a fully stock motorcycle. I'm already making plans for 2017, physical fitness, mentally, as well as for the bike, in order to attempt to fight for novice championship titles next year in AFM.
