About me: I’ve been eyeballing sportbikes since I was a toddler. In high school I started getting seat time on dirt bikes. I’ve always been above average with coordination and feel on a motorcycle. Having said that, I picked up sportbike racing as soon as I could. I dont know what I would do without it.

Interesting stats: Amateur year I racked up the points with a stock, poor setup bike. I was region champion in all my classes. I’ve been progressively improving my riding technique and bike setup the past few seasons. Currently in expert class I enjoy podium finishes from back row starts. Once I get the bike working well enough for track records I will be able to throw down my best and go to National races.

2015 Goals: “GET FAST” so I can break some records.

Current Sponsors: Farrell Performance, Pirelli, VP fuels, Vortex, EBC brakes
