Between my dad drag racing or it always being on TV, racing has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.

In high school, after I learned one could make a living in the motorsport world as an engineer, a path appeared before me. I was the first person in my immediate family to go to college and while I was going to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, I used design classes to design parts and start upgrading the car I had at the time.

I turned my street car into a race car, and by my senior year of college, I raced it for the first time.

After earning a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, I accepted a job at Honda R&D. I packed up my car and left for Ohio.
