BIO

I was born with a passion for anything with wheels and an engine. I watched my dad race motocross as I was growing up and loved every minute of it. Then, when I was four years old I got a motorcycle of my own, a Yamaha PW-50. After years of riding in the dirt, I switched to asphalt when I was 12 years old and realized I was a lot better at road racing than motocross. I focused all of my energy into improving my skills at road racing and slowly started working my way through the rankings. I turned professional when I was 16 years old and won my first ever pro race in 2011. In 2012 I was picked up by Yamaha and Gravesport, who I still race with to this day (as of this writing). From the first time I twisted the throttle on my tiny, 50cc Yamaha, I dreamed of riding a motorcycle everyday. I'm lucky enough that I'm able to live out that dream and I plan on doing everything I can do keep it going for as long as possible!
