[divider scroll_text=”ABOUT ME”]

My racing career began in 2006 with frequent outings at road racing and drifting events, where I focused on developing the skills and techniques to participate in various forms of racing. These skills led to the Skip Barbers Racing School, where I raced with their Formula cars, and worked my way to the advanced program at the legendary Laguna Seca Raceway. The personal philosophy of “continual improvement” extends to my approach of the build and maintenance of my race vehicle. I personally perform all modifications and often test various settings to increase my adaptability to various racing conditions.

My accumulated racing knowledge paid off when I participated in the Redline Time Attack series in 2010. With an extremely limited budget and very modest car, I was able to podium within my class at every attending event and give the “big-budget” vehicles a run for their money. I am a firm believer that hard work and motivation go a long way, and I plan to continue the momentum and attitude into the 2013 racing season.
