Tell us a little bit about yourself.  I am a hard-working career-minded person who has a passion for motor sports.  As a Maryland resident, I am centrally located to many of the GNCC events and have attended all of the GNCC events for the last three years, initially competing in the morning races, and more recently competing in the afternoon races in the ”Vet B” class.

What is your favorite part of riding a quad? The adrenaline rush of structured chaos.  Being forced to focus 100% of my attention on the current moment.  During a race, everything else goes to the back of my mind and I direct all of my energy to overcoming the challenges at hand.

How did you get started in the sport? Having ridden dirt bikes, go-carts, and ATV’s growing up, I always had an interest in motor sports. In 2008, the topic of GNCC racing came up among a few friends and we talked about attending the Steele Creek race in NC to spectate and see what it was all about. We decided to take the quads with us and enter the race as competitors in the morning race.  From that moment forward I’ve been hooked!

What are your long term racing goals? I’d like to continue racing for as long as my body and bank account will allow.  Desert racing has intrigued me for a while so I’d like to try out a couple desert events and eventually race in the Baja 1000.

What is your biggest ambition? For racing, it is to grow the race team into something that is widely recognized within the industry. Ultimately, I would like the team to encompass riders from all over the country, including riders who participate in different types of racing.

How did you get involved with the team? I’ve been involved with the process from the beginning. We started seriously talking about the team in a conceptual manner during the middle of the 2012 race season. Toward the end of the 2012 season we continued to gain momentum and officially set things in motion for the team to become a reality.  My mechanical knowledge is one of the things that I’m able to contribute to the team. Additionally, having a long-time interest in photography and videography allows me to contribute to the teams success in more creative ways as well.
